You will need:

  • glutinous rice flour1 cup of glutinous rice flour
  • sweet red bean paste1/2 cup of sweet red bean paste
  • sesame seeds1/2 cup of sesame seeds
  • vegetable oilVegetable oil for deep frying


  1. First, in a large mixing bowl, combine the glutinous rice flour with enough water to form a dough. The dough should not be too dry or too wet, aim for a play-dough like consistency.
  2. Next, divide the dough into small pieces, about the size of a golf ball. Flatten each piece and place a spoonful of sweet red bean paste in the center. Carefully fold the dough over the filling, pinching the edges to seal.
  3. Then, roll each filled dough ball in sesame seeds, making sure it's fully coated. This will give the balls a nice crunch and extra flavor after frying.
  4. Finally, heat the vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large, deep saucepan. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the balls, a few at a time, and fry until they turn golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil and drain on paper towels.


Make sure not to overcrowd the pan when frying the sesame balls as they need space to expand. Serve warm for the best taste.

Indulge in the irresistible taste of Sesame Balls, a delightful Asian dessert that will transport your taste buds to new heights. These golden, crispy balls are filled with sweet red bean paste and coated in sesame seeds, creating a perfect balance of flavors and textures.

To make Sesame Balls, you will need:

  • 1 cup of glutinous rice flour
  • 1/2 cup of sweet red bean paste
  • 1/2 cup of sesame seeds
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying

Begin by combining the glutinous rice flour with water to form a smooth dough. This dough will serve as the base for our Sesame Balls, providing a chewy and slightly sweet exterior. Once the dough is ready, divide it into small pieces and shape them into balls.

Next, it's time to add the delicious filling. Take each ball of dough and make a small indentation in the center. Fill the indentation with a generous spoonful of sweet red bean paste. The creamy and sweet filling will be a delightful surprise as you bite into the crispy Sesame Balls.

Now, it's time to give our Sesame Balls their signature crunch. Roll each ball in sesame seeds, ensuring that they are fully coated. The sesame seeds not only add a delightful nutty flavor but also create a beautiful golden crust when deep-fried.

Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan or pot. Carefully place the coated Sesame Balls into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Allow them to fry until they turn a beautiful golden brown color. The deep-frying process will give our Sesame Balls a crispy exterior while keeping the inside soft and gooey.

Once the Sesame Balls are golden and crispy, remove them from the oil and let them drain on a paper towel to remove any excess oil. Serve these delectable treats warm for the best taste. The combination of the crispy sesame crust, the sweet red bean filling, and the chewy glutinous rice dough will leave you craving for more.
