This is a Cambodian snack composed of glutinous rice flour, palm sugar and grated coconut. If you curious about the name… The story behind it is....once upon a time there was a newly wed couple. One morning husband went to work and the wife decided to make a treat for when her hubby returns. The husband returned just as the wife was done cooking the snacks. He quickly popped one in his mouth but it was still too hot and he ate too fast he started choking. However, he wanted look "manly" in front of his new wife so he acted like nothing happened and tried to swallow it down....sadly he didn't make it. Thus these snacks became known as husband killers.
-1 package glutinous rice flour (1lb)
What to Do:
Add water slowly to flour and mix to form a smooth dough that does not stick to you hands and can hold its shape. Break sugar into small pieces. Grate coconut into thin strips. Take a small piece of dough, flatten it and wrap a piece of sugar in the center. Boil rice balls until the float to the surface of the water. Remove to a bowl of cold water then to a colander to drain. Mix with grated coconut and serve.
