Taro Bread Recipe - Hawaiian Taro

Taro Rolls

Taro Bread

Hawaiian taro is more versatile today than just traditional poi. In the islands it's also made into chips (as in potato chips) and even flour which is then used to bake pancakes, or bread. Our Polynesian Cultural Center Alii Luau recipe calls for a delicious dinner roll form.
Yield: 1-1/2 doz


  Warm water (90 degrees), 1-1/3 cups
  Egg, 1
  Poi, 1 cup
  Butter, softened, 1/2 cup
  Purple Food Coloring, 1 tsp
  Sugar, 1 cup
  Flour, 2 lbs
  Salt, 1/4 tsp
  Yeast , 2-1/2 tsp


Using a table mixer
In a mixing bowl combine egg, butter, food coloring, poi and water
