    Sesame Seed Balls


    Ingredients:

    6 cups oil for deep-frying
    1/2 cup white sesame seeds
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    1 - 1 1/3 cups boiling water
    3 cups (about 400 grams) glutinous rice flour

    Options for filling
    Peanut and Coconut Filling:
    2 tablespoons grated coconut
    1/3 cup chopped roasted peanuts
    2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons white sugar

    White Sesame Seed Paste:
    200g white sesame seeds
    5-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


    Directions:

    1. Pre-heat wok or saucepan with oil to 350 °F. Make sure that there is at least 3 inches of oil in the wok.
    2. Spread the sesame seeds over a piece of wax or parchment paper. Place a small bowl of water beside the sesame seeds.
    3. Dissolve the brown sugar in 1 cup of the boiling water.
    4. Place the rice flour in a large bowl. Make a "well" in the middle of the bowl and add the dissolved sugar and water mixture. Stir until you have a sticky, golden brown coloured dough, adding as much of the remaining 1/3 cup of boiling water if needed.
    5. Pinch off a piece of dough roughly the size of a golf ball and roll into a bowl. Place optional filling in the dough and seal tightly.
    6. Dip the finished ball into a small bowl of water as a form of glue. Roll the ball over the sesame seeds. Repeat the process with the remainder of the balls.
    7. Deep-fry the sesame seed balls, a few at a time, in the hot oil.
    8. Once the sesame seeds turn light brown (about 2 minutes), use the back of a spatula or a large ladle to gently press the balls against the side of the wok or saucepan. Continue applying pressure as the balls turn golden brown and expand to approximately 3 times their normal size.
    9. Drain the deep-fried sesame seed balls on paper towels. Serve warm.
