This is one of my favorites, this is similar like in Chowking Butchi..Love it, perfect for a snack!

2 cups glutinous rice flour
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tbs white sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup sweet potato or red bean
1/4 cup water
oil for deep frying


In a small pot of water, boil sweet potato until soft, drain from water and mash. Stir 1/2 cup of sugar into the mashed sweet potatoes, set aside.

Combine the glutinous rice flour, 2 tbsp sugar,salt and 1/4 cup of water in a large bowl. Knead together just enough to form a ball.

Flatten each ball of rice dough, and spread out thinly. Place ball of sweet potato on top of rice dough, then carefully wrap to form into a shape of ball.

Roll the stuffed balls into the sesame seeds.

Fry in deep medium high oil until golden brown.

Serve. Share and enjoy!
