Sesame Cookie Balls are actually deep-fried cookie balls rolled in sesame seeds. They are golden in colour as pumpkin paste is added to enrich the colour. Sesame cookie balls are crunchy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside. Not only are they delicious and ridiculously addictive, they are super easy and quick to make too.

Step 1
First, prepare all ingredients needed to make the sesame cookie balls.
Step 2
Sift the Self-Rising Flour (120 gram), All-Purpose Flour (100 gram), and Powdered Confectioners Sugar (80 gram) and set aside for use later.
Step 3
Then in a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add in Canned Pumpkin Purée (100 gram), Margarine (30 gram), and Egg (1). Use the dough hook to mix well.
Step 4
Next, add in the sifted dry ingredients.
Step 5
Still using the dough hook, knead the mixture into a soft dough.
Step 6
Remove the dough from mixer, cover the mixing bowl with cling wrap and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Step 7
Place the chilled dough on a floured working surface.
Step 8
Divide the dough into two equal halves for easier handling.
Step 9
Roll each half of the dough and cut into small pieces, about 1.5 cm each. You should have 9 pieces.
Step 10
Roll them into balls.
Step 11
Weigh each cookie ball to ensure they are of the same size. They should each be about 25 grams.
Step 12
In batches, place the rolled balls into a sieve and dip them briefly into cold water.
Step 13
Shake off excess water and roll them in the White Sesame Seeds (1/2 cup). Repeat the same for the rest of the cookie dough.
Step 14
Roll them lightly again before frying to ensure the sesame seeds stick to the cookie balls.
Step 15
In a large pot or pan, fill with about 2 inches of Vegetable Oil (as needed). Heat until hot and bubbles appear at the tip when a wooden chopstick is dipped into the oil.
Step 16
In batches, add in the sesame cookie balls into the hot oil. Then bring the temperature to medium low and fry the dough for about 10 minutes or until the balls crack and are about golden brown in colour.
Step 17
When done, remove the dough balls from the oil using a strainer.
Step 18
Drain the dough balls on paper towel.
Step 19
Cool thoroughly (about 15 minutes) so that they crisp up before serving with hot brewed tea. As always, ENJOY!
