1/2 cup sugar or to taste
water for cooking
1. Mix the water and glutinous rice slowly, until you form a dough.
2. Spoon a portion from the dough and form it into 3-inch circle and place the candied pineapple in center. Gather the edges onto itself to seal then press and roll between the palms to make a ball.
3. Boil enough water in a pot, once boiling drop the balls, and wait for it to float, once floating, ladle it and set aside.
4. Mix the sugar and grated coconut then roll the cooked rice balls and serve.
