Recipe Ingredient

  • 200g plain flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 65g sugar
  • 65ml UHT milk
  • 1½ tbsp margarine or butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • Filling
  • 150g lotus paste or red bean paste (available at bakery shops)


  1. To prepare the filling: Portion out the lotus paste or red bean paste into small balls of about 5g each.
  2. Put sifted dried ingredients, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Pour in the milk and stir in the melted margarine or butter to mix into a soft dough.
  3. Divide the dough into portions of 25-30g each and wrap around a small ball of filling. Shape into a neat round ball. Dip the ball lightly in water, then dip into the sesame seeds to coat all over. Press the sesame seeds tightly around. Heat enough oil in a wok and slide in the sesame balls.
  4. Deep-fry the balls over a gentle low heat, stirring frequently until they turn lightly golden.
  5. Remove the sesame seed balls and drain them well on absorbent paper towels.
