SESAME BALLS WITH RED BEAN PASTE BY DAPUR SINOLIN
We always meet this cake in our traditional market but the taste is not cheesy.
- 200 ml of water
- 1 cup red beans
- ¼ cup of sugar
- 4 cups of sticky rice flour
- 50 grams of sugar flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ cup of sesame seeds
- Water for dipping
Prepare a small dough
- In a small bowl, take about 2 tablespoons of glutinous rice flour and stir with about 10ml of water. Knead until smooth.
- Boil the water and cook a small mixture of about 2 to 3 minutes. Prepare a bowl with cold water beside it. Then the small mixture is ready, move it out and soak it in cold water to cool.
Prepare the main mixture
- In a large bowl, mix the left flour with sugar and baking powder. And then add the small dough inside. crush by hand and slowly stir with water. Continue kneading until the mixture is smooth.
- Next, form the dough into a long log and then divide it into 20 equal parts. Shape each part into a round ball.
Add the sesame ball
- Form a small sticky rice ball into a bowl and then wrap about 1 teaspoon of red bean paste. Seal completely and form into a ball around again.
- Prepare two bowls: one with clean water and the other with sesame. Take one ball with one hand, dip it quickly in water, then roll the ball in a sesame bowl with the other hand. This is a personal tip to simplify the process. Press the ball several times so the sesame seeds can stick to the surface. Repeat to finish all sesame balls.
Fry the ball
- Heat enough oil (not to cover the ball) to 120 degrees C (or you can test the temperature with a smaller ball). Carefully add the sesame ball, slow down your fire immediately and slowly fry the ball until it’s slightly golden. Turn off the fire; transfer and absorb extra oil with paper. Cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
