Sesame Kueh 芝麻粄


This recipe was adapted from a new cookbook that I bought recently. The best thing of this kueh is you don't need a mould to make it.

The whole kueh is coating with toasted sesame seeds, full of sesame seeds aroma

As usual, I cooked red bean paste using the cooked red bean from red bean dessert soup (just add sugar to cook till thicken) ..

I found the dough is a bit dry when shaping with red bean paste..but it is ok after cooked as the whole kueh will cover by toasted sesame seeds..

Looks really yummy. Would love to give this a try. This kueh looks like that "Jian Dui" but the only thing is this is not deep fried. Thanks for sharing this.
