Jin Dui Chinese Sesame Donut
Chef Andrew Faulkner
6 ounces Organic Sweet Potatoes
1 1/2 cups Glutinous Rice Flour
1/3 cup All-Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
1/2 cup Hot Water
10 ounces Red Bean Paste
2/3 cup White Sesame Seeds
Oil for frying
Peel the sweet potatoes and boil them until tender, then mash them. Sift the glutinous rice flour and flour together then blend together with the sugar and mashed sweet potato. Knead the mixture well and sprinkle in the hot water.
Knead the dough into small balls and then roll each ball into a flat round shape. Spoon on some red bean paste onto each as stuffing and knead back into balls. Coat the balls with cold water, then coat thoroughly with sesame seeds.
Deep fry on a low heat until the balls are golden and swollen. Drain and serve.
