Lotus Blossom Cookie

4 C (1 bag) rice flour
2 C sugar
5 large eggs
1 can coconut milk
1/2 C water
oil for deep frying
Lotus Blossom deep frying mold (on Amazon)

Heat about 4 inches of oil to 400 in a deep pot. (on the stove, this is very low heat).

Mix all remaining ingredients thoroughly until there are no lumps, in a metal bowl. Make several balls from aluminum foil, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter

Heat mold in the hot oil for 5 minutes. Dip mold in batter so it comes about halfway up mold and put into oil. After it sizzles a few seconds, lift partway out of oil so the “flower: slips off and put the mold into the oil under the cookie to reheat. If it doesn’t slip off by itself, you may have to gently push it off with a small knife. Flip the cookie as it fries to golden and then remove with a slotted spoon and drape over an aluminum foil ball until is hardens. Cool. Repeat until batter is gone. Keep in air tight container and eat within a couple days.
