Masi are glutinous rice balls with a peanut and muscovado filling from Cebu, Philippines. It is made from sweetened galapong (ground soaked glutinous rice) shaped into little balls with a filling of chopped roasted peanuts and muscovado or brown sugar. It is then boiled in water until it floats. It can also be steamed. It is traditionally sold wrapped in banana leaves. Masi can be modified to use different fillings, like chocolate or peanut butter. Coconut milk may also be used to give the dough a creamier flavor.
