Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Start by boiling ginger syrup. First, peel the skin off the old Fresh Ginger (1 1/2 cups) .
Step 2
Then, cut the ginger into thick pieces and lightly bruised them to release their aromatic flavour.
Step 3
Bring a pot of Water (5 cups) a boil.
Step 4
Add the crushed ginger and knotted screw pine leaves. Bring the water to a boil again.
Step 5
Cover and reduce heat to a simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes to allow the aroma of ginger and screw pine leaves to infuse into the water.
Step 6
Then add in Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup) and sweet Dried Osmanthus Flowers (1 tsp) . Boil for another 5 minutes over medium heat.
Step 7
Then lower heat to a simmer and boil till the liquid has reduced a little, another 10 minutes. And we're done!
Step 8
Remove the crushed ginger and screw pine leaves from the ginger infused syrup and set aside while we prepare the black sesame filling.
Step 9
While waiting for the ginger soup to simmer, prepare the glutinous rice ball filling. Lightly toast Black Sesame Seeds (1/4 cup) over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes till aromatic.
Step 10
Then coarsely grind the toasted black sesame seeds.
Step 11
Transfer the ground sesame to a bowl. Add in Granulated Sugar (1 cup) and Coconut Oil (1/4 cup) .
Step 12
Stir to mix well and form into a paste. Set aside to chill in refrigerator while we prepare the glutinous rice dough.
Step 13
In a mixing bowl, add hot boiling water into Sweet Glutinous Rice Flour (1 2/3 cups) to half cook it.
Step 14
Using a spoon or spatula, stir to mix well. Adding Water (1/2 cup) the rice balls chewy.
Step 15
Then, add some Water (1/2 cup) into the dough. Water should be added a little at a time, depending on the consistency of the dough.
Step 16
Knead until you begin to see a nice looking dough and the dough should not stick to your hand or mixing bowl.
Step 17
When the dough is ready, we can now make rice balls. First, divide the dough into two halves for easier to work with.
Step 18
Take one half and roll into a log and cut into pieces, 20g each.
Step 19
Using our palms, roll each piece of dough into a ball. Repeat the same with the other half of the dough.
Step 20
Cover the glutinous rice balls with a tea towel to prevent them from drying.
Step 21
Take a piece of the dough ball and flatten. Then place 1 teaspoon of sesame paste filling in the middle.
Step 22
Wrap the dough around the filling and roll into a smooth ball. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough balls. And we have made glutinous rice balls with black sesame filling!
Step 23
To cook the glutinous rice balls, first boil a pot of water. Then put in the glutinous rice balls. Be sure not to overcrowd the pot. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
Step 24
Let them cook for 3 to 5 minutes. When cooked, the glutinous rice balls will float onto the surface of the water.
Step 25
Sieve out all the cooked glutinous rice balls and place them into a bowl of cold water for about 1 minute. This process will make the rice balls more chewy.
Step 26
Then place the glutinous rice balls into the pot of ginger syrup prepared earlier. And we're done!
Step 27
Black sesame glutinous rice balls can be served hot or cold with the aromatic ginger syrup. So Enjoy!
