DSCN5900
Sesame balls is a very popular dessert in Chinese restaurant and pastry shop. It is made from glutinous rice flour , outside coated with sesame seeds and is crisp ,sweet and chewy texture. In this recipe i use the pumpkin puree mix with flour and the filling with sweetened red bean paste. You can change any filling you prefer like cheese flavor also such a good idea ~ It is a great dessert pair with a cup of Chinese tea in this moment  =)

芝麻球是在中餐館和糕點店是一道很受歡迎的甜点。它是由糯米粉製成,外面沾满了芝麻粒,香甜有嚼勁的質感。在這食谱当中我加入南瓜泥和馅料是甜豆沙。你也可以换其他的口味像是芝士也是不错的口味〜这时刻来份中式甜點搭配一杯中國茶也很棒=)

Place the sesame balls on baking pan with parchment paper.Then brush with a thin layer of sesame oil.Preheat the oven to 220C , bake for 12-15minutes until crisp golden brown. You may choose to deep-fry the sesame balls instead of bake..(I’m prefer bake =) 将南瓜芝麻球摆在铺好烘焙纸的烤盘上再刷上薄薄一层的芝麻油。预热烤箱在220度,烘烤12-15分钟至到外皮呈现酥脆金黄色即可。你可选择以热炸的方式(但我个人比较爱以烘烤的方式)

Drizzle with condensed milk to add little sweetness taste before serving. That’s why i didn’t add any sugar because the sweetness of pumpkin itself. If you want some more sweetness can add in the sugar mix together with glutinous rice flour.

在品尝前,先淋上少许的炼奶以增加小点心的甜味。所以在食谱里,我完全没加一点的糖份因为南瓜本身就有甜味在。如果你想要更多的甜味可以混合糖在糯米粉里一起拌匀即可。
