Sesame Balls (Jean Doi)

Sesame Balls (Jean Doi)

"Jean Doi" (in cantonese)
Ingredients:
2 1/2 slab chinese brown sugar*
1 cup water, boiling
3 cups Glutinous Rice Flour
1 1/2 cup red bean paste, or lotus seed paste, or black bean paste
1 cup sesame seeds

*if chinese brown sugar isn't available, you can use 1/2 cup of granulated sugar.

Instructions:
Dissolve the sugar in 1 cup of boiling water and cool.
Put the flour in a large bowl and add the sugar water.
Stir until incorporated.
The dough will be smooth but slightly sticky.
Roll into a rope and cut into 24 pieces.
Dust hand with some rice flour and roll each piece into a ball and flatten to a 2 1/2" round.
Using the thumbs and index fingers from both hands, pleat the edges of the dough and form a cup.
Place one index finger into the cup and gently press the dough into the opposite palm on all sides of the cup to create a smooth, even surface and to make the dough even thinner.
Add about 1 teaspoon of bean paste.
Gather the edges over the filling and roll back into a ball.
Wet ball lightly and roll in the sesame seeds. Repeat using all 24 pieces.

Heat oil and put 5-6 balls in the oil.
When they rise to the top they will start puffing up.
Use a spatua and gently press the balls to the side of the pan, rotating the ball as you press (it will give a very thin dough texture inside.)
Best the day of.

**Also I don't roll the dough into a rope and cut into 24 pieces. I just grab the amount of dough that I want to use and roll it into the ball then flattened into a disk.
