i grew up in the island and i do sometimes miss the local food. its hard to find them here in the mainland. so i have to cook them myself. share your favorite hawaiian food recipies with others. i'll post more in comments and stuff when i find more. ALOHA!!! -------------- Kulolo (i haven't tried this dish yet since its hard to get a hold on some taro or at least poi) Variation 1 INGREDIENTS: * 1 large taro root, grated * 3 coconuts, grated * 1 cup water * 2 cups coconut water * 2 tsp brown sugar PREPARATION: Mix taro with coconut meat. Add water, coconut water, and brown sugar. Put in baking pan. Top with butter. Bake 1 hour in moderate oven (350 degrees for most). You may wish to partially cook the taro before grating. Cut in chunks and boil slightly. Do not overcook. Variation 2 INGREDIENTS: * 4 cups taro root, grated * 3/4 cup brown sugar * 1 cup honey * 1 cup coconut milk * 2 ti leaves PREPARATION: Mix all ingredients together. Line loaf pan with foil. Place the ti leaves on the foil; cutting to fit the pan. Pour the pudding into the pan and cover top with foil. Bake 2 hours in 400º oven. Remove foil during last half hour to allow pudding to brown. Kulolo was originally prepared with grated taro and shredded coconut. It was wrapped in ti leaves and baked in the imu. (underground oven)

is that supposed to be a cake? it would be interesting to know a few more hawaiian recipes! and a picture of what they are supposed to look like - i just love trying new things and yes you are right. the states should include more hawaiian restaurants!

its not really a cake. the texture is more "mushy" the best i can explain it is hawaian mochi. but it tastes oh so good!!! the only place i can find it pre-made is in hawaii. if you ever visit there, just ask someone where to find it. its not too sweet either and when its fresh....mmmm-good. =)
