  • 1 lb poi
  • 1 box mochiko (rice flour)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Coconut oil (enough to submerge poi mochi balls)

Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Make small balls the size of a golf ball. Heat the cooking oil to high. Test a small piece of batter. If oil is hot enough it will float. Deep fry poi mochi balls. Roll in sugar. Let cool and enjoy!
