This is maybe the easier and the quicker recipe I’ve ever posted, but it saves my dinner. My friends and I do appreciated it and for these reasons deserves a space in the blog. Besides to make it you don’t need to switch on the oven and wait at least half an hour until it’s ready, just bring a pot of water to a boil and drop the balls for a few minutes.
I’m not a big fan of sweets in general, but peanut butter is one of my favorite cream. I usually eat it in sandwiches, sauces and whatever comes out of the refrigerator. As filling it gives a toch of decadence to this simple glutinous rice balls, while fleur de sel enanches and complements its natural flavour.
Before preparing this dessert I was thinking to fill the balls with the azuki beans paste I prepared in a large amount, but then I decided to use it in another sweet recipe. I need to develop an idea that came up in my mind, try it and then I’m going to post!
I do suggest to keep the dough covered with a damped towel and boil the balls immediatly as they dry up very quickly. Besides they can be also be frozen and boiled in a second time.
What else? Make it and enjoy it!
Ingredients (makes 20 balls)
For the dough
200 gr glutinous rice flour
140 ml water
For the filling
100 gr unsalted peanut butter
1 tbsp agave syrup
1\2 tsp fleur de sel
For the topping
50 gr black sesame seeds
50 gr white sesame seeds
Start by heating a pan and toasting the sesam seeds, then set the topping aside.
For the filling combine unsalted peanut butter, agave syrup and fleur de sel until it forms a thick paste.
Before making the dough bring a pot of water to a boil.
Put glutinous rice flour and water in a bowl and whisk with a fork. Knead until the dough becames like play dough. Pinch off small pieces of dough and flatten into round discs. Spoon some of the filling into the centre of each disc and roll into balls.
During this operation remember to cover the dough with a damped towel and boil the balls immediatly as they dry up very quickly.
Drop the balls into the boling water and remove when they float on the surface. Roll over the sesame seeds and serve immediately.
