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.
