First of all, shout out to my talented older brother @trizav for his beautiful singing in the video with Josh Tatofi. His voice is as smooth as the coconut sauce. The song is "Ka makani ka'lii Aloha" 🌺
This is my hubby's speciality. He always makes the BEST Pani Popo and well, this recipe is from his Mama who is an amazing bread baker too. Look at that delicious coconut sauce 😍 It tastes just as good as it looks, I promise.
