These sesame glutinous rice balls are popular nowadays. You can find them in coffee shops (served at three at a time on a small sacuer) and they are also found in most stalls in pasar malam.
When we were younger we loved to bite wastefully at the sesame seeds and then ate the filling - discarding the "glutinous skin". It was a wasteful way of eating and we got scolded.
The best part for me is to see the balls fluff up in the oil and the balls getting cooked...one gets a quick fix in the procedure of successful cooking.
Now that Ramadan is almost here....these balls would be again made in large quantities in the open air market...
Sesame is a good food medicinally. And red beans are nutritious also. But I cannot say too many good things about glutinous rice as it icontains very high level of glucose. It is not good for diabetics.
