Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

200g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/8 tsp salt
65g sugar
65ml UHT milk
1 1/2 tbsp margarine/butter (melted)
1/2 cup sesame seeds

150g lotus paste/red bean paste (available at bakery shops)


Put sifted dried ingredients, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl.

Pour in the milk and stir in the melted butter to mix into a soft dough.

Divide the dough into portions of 30g each and wrap around a small ball of lotus/red bean paste filling.

Shape into a neat round ball.

Dip the ball lightly in water then dip into the sesame seeds to coat all over.

Press the sesame seeds tightly around.

Heat enough oil in a wok and slide in the sesame balls.

Deep-fry the balls over a gentle low heat, stirring frequently until they turn lightly golden.

Remove from heat and drain on absorbent paper towels.
