Sesame Seed Balls

Tried something new in the kitchen. And thanks to my ever reliable recipe source, The Tummy Train by Cla Panuelos. Sesame Seed Balls is the famous "buchi," a sesame covered fried glutinous rice.
No need to list the recipe and how it's made, I have it covered in how I describe "buchi." 
Sesame Seed Balls
  • 6 tbsp. red bean paste
  • 1 3/4 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sesame seed
  • oil for frying
  1. Place glutinous rice in a bowl. Make a large well at the center. Prepare water nearby for wetting of hands.
  2. Bring water to boil the add brown sugar. Remove from heat and pour into the glutinous rice.
  3. Stir rice flour and sugar mixture.
  4. Knead and form into logs.
  5. Cut into equal portions, shape into balls then flatten and add the filling. Form it into balls and roll in sesame seeds.
  6. Deep fry.

Happy to see my Mama Dora's smile when I served her and Papa "buchi" while they were watching their usual Sunday afternoon T.V. Buchi is Mama Dora's favorite, its the reason why she would at times visit Chowking. For my filling, I was not able to find red bean paste in the grocery, so I used my all time favorite Hany, mix it with evaporated milk to make a paste. Browie asked for after, so it means one thing, it's a thumds up!
