Sift white flour, rice flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Add oil and enough water and knead well to a smooth dough. Combine grated coconut and palm sugar in another bowl. Scoop small lumps of dough, roll into balls and flatten. Place coconut and palm sugar mixture in the center of flat circles and close to seal the dough together. Roll into a ball again. In a large saucepan, boil the coconut milk and Sugar. Once boiling, drop in the balls. Stir gently to prevent the balls from sticking to the bottom. The balls will float to the surface when cooked. Simmer for 10 minutes after the balls float. Scoop the balls and serve on a plate.
