It is a variation of the traditional Chinese sweet sticky rice cake. Wherein the classic vanilla-flavored Tikoy is generously filled with peanut butter filling and rolled in crushed roasted peanut.

Ingredients for making Tikoy Rolls

Tips to remember when making Peanut Tikoy Rolls

The Toothpick test. To know if your Tikoy is done, insert a toothpick in the middle part. If it comes out clean after pulling it out, your Tikoy is cooked.

About glutinous rice flour. Just like any other rice, glutinous rice also has varying water absorption levels. This recipe should only serve as a guide.  You may need to adjust the water if the batter does not become smooth.

Grease your pan. Make sure to grease your pan with oil before pouring the glutinous rice batter so it does not stick while steaming. This will make it easier to dislodge later on.

Storing Tikoy. If you made a big batch and have leftover Tikoy, you can wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate. It can be store for months. When you are ready for some, you can simply cut a portion and reheat by steaming or using your microwave.

  • 2 cups glutinous rice flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter - for filling
  • 1 cup finely chopped roasted peanut - for dredging
  • coconut or vegetable oil - for greasing


  • In a bowl, mix glutinous rice and sugar. Pour in warm water and vanilla extract and mix until batter becomes smooth.
  • Grease 2 (6x6-inch) square or (7x5-inch) rectangle pan (glass, ceramic, or aluminum)  with oil and fill it with the batter about ½ inch  high.
  • Steam over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from steamer and let cool a bit. Run an oiled knife around the sides of the pan to let it loose if needed.
