Craving for some homemade Espasol? Here is a simple recipe to follow and to enjoy!

2 cups glutinous rice flour, toasted to pale brown
1 can 400 ml coconut milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon salt

After roasting the glutinous rice flour set aside 3 tablespoon for rolling espasol.
Using a wide pot combine coconut milk, sugar, salt and vanilla extract, bring to boil in medium low heat stirring constantly.
Slowly add the roasted glutinous rice stirring regularly to prevent lumps.
Reduce heat to the lowest, keep stirring until mixture becomes sticky and becomes a bit oily.
Transfer mixture in a flat surface dusted with the roasted glutinous rice flour.
Roll and flatten the mixture.
Cut espasol into strips and roll on toasted rice flour until fully coated.
Wrap each piece in wax paper or arrange in a serving dish covered with banana leaves and serve.
