Microwave Strawberry Sticky Rice Ball

Saw a recipe from Angie's website, had all the ingredients, and tried it out. Made this sticky snack/dessert today, and it was surprisingly different and interesting.
Recipe from Angie's
150 g glutinous rice flour
30 g sugar
1 cup water
2.5 tbs peanut oil
10 g fresh strawberries, destemmed
300 g red bean paste
some cooked glutinous rice flour

Add oil to red bean paste and blend to mix. Chill for 1 hour. Wrap each strawberry with prepared red bean paste, roll each into a ball and store them in the fridge until ready for use.

In a microwavable container, combine the glutinous rice flour, water, sugar and res of oil. Cover and microwave for 4 mins. Stir with a spoon and return to microwave for another 3 mins.

Once the rice dough is cooled enough to touch, take out and sprinkle with cooked rice flour.

Divide it into 10 portions and roll each into a round disk like a dumpling wrapper, wrap with prepared strawberry bean paste and form into balls.

Recipe from In Angie's Kitchen

Note: I thought this was a fun creation. Much better with sweet strawberries. I had a couple of tart strawberries, and it was fighting with the sweet red bean paste and the chewiness of this snack. Very interesting concept. Not so kid friendly.

No red bean paste here so I will have to think of something else to put in it. Yesterday my daughter ate 3 Gougères for lunch. Then she saw daddy eating Almond Apple Pie, she also wants some too. She's showing sign of being a little dessert monster. hahaha

I have been wanting to make this recipe for ages. I think the original recipe is from Precious Moments. Like a Japanese Mochi.

Very pretty leh!

Hi Cooking Ninja,
It's good to see kids enjoy their food, and you little one is a fan of her mom's desserts! :)

Hey C,
Didn't know it was from Precious Moments as I only saw it at Angie's. Yes, it's fun and chewy like mochi. Thanks! :)
