Sesame Balls | China


Sesame Balls, locally known as Jian Dui (pronounced ‘zeen doy’ we think), is a type of fried Chinese pastry made from glutinous rice flour. The pastry is coated with sesame seeds on the outside and is crisp and chewy, with a surprise as you bite into it. It is hollow inside because of the expansion of the dough when it is fried in superhot oil. Sometimes this cavity is filled with fillings, such as lotus seeds, black bean, or red bean paste. It is fried till golden brown in color and is just right for cool autumn evenings. And for those who would like to believe, there is a Chinese belief that if you eat sesame balls, your fortunes will expand like the dessert.
