Glutinous Rice Balls Recipe
(Che Troi Nuoc)
Glutinous rice flour
Split green beans, soaked for 2 hours
Ginger, peeled and chopped
White sesame seeds, toasted
Coconut milk syrup
In a large bowl, combine glutinous rice
flour and 1 teaspoon salt. Gradually add enough warm water to form a
soft pliable dough. Form the mixture into 3 cm balls.
Steam green beans until soft then blend
(process) into a paste. Stir fry over low heat with remaining salt, 100
g sugar and 10 g chopped ginger. Stir fry until bean paste is dry.
Form mixture into balls, slightly smaller
than the glutinous rice flour balls.
Flatten a glutinous rice flour ball and
press a bean paste ball into it. Roll to enclose green bean paste fully.
Repeat with remaining glutinous rice flour balls and bean paste balls.
Bring 2 liters water to the boil then add
balls in to cook. When balls float to the surface, remove then rinse
under running water for 2 minutes.
Bring another 2 liters water to the boil
then add in remaining sugar and ginger. Stir for 10 minutes.
Place glutinous rice balls in and return
to the boil.
Serve glutinous rice balls with sugar
syrup in a small bowl, topped with coconut milk syrup and sesame seeds.
