This morning Dai Bee’s friends came over to work on a science project together. While Ah Lo finished his homework, I kept myself in the kitchen.  With a new (yuan bao – 元寶) mold I purchased from eBay, I was anxious to make some black sesame glutinous rice balls. Glutinous rice flour are white, so I added one egg yolk to give it the yellow color to look like a gold ingot!


For stuffing, I used black sesame paste which I prepared myself. Preparing the stuffing allows me to adjust the sweetness (usually store bought ones are way too sweet for me!) My nieces tried it for the first time and gave me two thumbs up!
