  • 10 g sesame seeds
  • 20 g desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 piece brown sugar
  • 3 slices of old ginger
  1. In a large bowl, place glutinous rice flour and rice flour. Add warm water and knead for form dough. Divide the dough into 7-10 portions; roll each portion into round ball.
  2. Bring some water to boil in a pot and cook all glutinous rice balls until they float on the surface. Stir to prevent them sticking; transfer the balls out.

  4. Roast or pan fry the peanuts until crispy and then crush.
To serve

  2. Method 2:Place the sticky balls firstly in serving plate and then pour the syrup over. Add sprinkles.
