|400 g||glutinous rice flour|
|300 ml||water (hot)|
|50 ml||water (cold)|
|30 g||black sesame|
|25 g||confectioner's sugar|
|50 ml||maple syrup|
|rice flour for handling dough|
Place the rice flour into a large bowl. First, whisk in the hot water. Then, add the cold water and mix well to combine. Using your hands, form dough into a ball. Cover and set aside.
In a grease-free pan, toast peanuts and black sesame until lightly roasted. Transfer to a food processor and finely grind. Then, place into a small bowl and add confectioner’s sugar and maple syrup. Mix until a sticky paste forms.
Place filling onto a cutting board and divide into four equal portions. Roll each portion into a small log and cut into hazelnut-sized pieces.
Lightly cover hands with rice flour. Take a small portion of the dough (approx. 1 tablespoon) and form a small dough round. Place filling in the center and wrap dough around to form a ball. Cover with rice flour.
Add water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Place balls in boiling water and reduce heat. Immediately stir to avoid sticking. Cover and allow to steep for approx. 3 – 5 min. until dumplings rise to the surface. Serve with cooking water.
