sesame seeds


1. 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.

2. 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. (Update: If its too dry, adjust a teaspoon of  water as needed to form a dough like texture).

3. 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.

4. Roll the stuffed balls into the sesame seeds.
