Poi Mochi Donuts

I love these poi mochi donuts… they remind me of gin doi. The donuts are nice and chewy with a nice crisp outer crust. I want to make a batch using coconut milk instead of water and coconut flakes in the dough.

  • 1 lb. poi
  • 2 packages  mochiko flour (rice flour)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1 cup powdered sugar for dusting



  • Mix the poi, mochiko, sugar and baking powder.
  • Add water slowly until mixture has the consistency of a thick muffin batter that is easy to scoop with a spoon.
  • Add purple food coloring to the mix if you prefer. Allow batter to sit for 10 minutes.  
  • Heat oil to 375 degrees. Drop tablespoons of mixture into oil and fry until outside is crispy and golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with powdered sugar. I like to put the powdered sugar in a double brown paper bag and add the donuts a few at a time and shaking the bag.  This keeps the powedered sugar mess to a minimum.
