Deep Fried Glutinuos Rice Balls *豆沙煎堆*

My favourite snack -- Glutinuos Rice Balls with Red Bean Paste!!

Whenever i saw this snack at stalls / hawker center, they are mostly wrapped with peanut paste. However, peanut is not my cup of tea. Therefore, i always got disappointed when i was told it's peanut inside.

When i saw Angie post this recipe in her blog. I was glad and copied the recipe without second thought.

I made 20 small balls. They taste FANTASTIC!!! I gave away all the balls to relatives, and got very good comments from them. The most satisfaction and happinesss which was the words from my super-picky hubby, "比外面卖的还好吃!"......

My admended recipe as follows:

Skin :
100g mashed sweet potato
150g glutinious rice flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
70g castor sugar
100ml water (add slowly until u got the right texture, might not need to finish all)
Red bean paste

sesame seed

1. Skin :Mix all the ingrediant, knead until dough is formed, divide into 20 small balls
2. Filling: Form the red bean paste into 20 balls
3. Wrap filling with the skin and form balls. Dip in water and coat with sesame seeds.
4. Heat oil, medium low, deep fry balls until golden brown. Dish and drain.
Do not dip fried too many glutinuos balls at a time. The balls will expand when frying, too squeeze or little space will affect its shape. I fried the 20 small balls in 3 times.


  1. i like it.
    do u boil the potatoes???

  2. Oh, sorry for writing without details. Potato need to be peel, boil and smashed.

    Thanks for your visits ;)

  3. Hi Pink Lady,
    I'm looking forward to try this recipe. Just would like to confirm/clarify that compared to Angie's recipe you doubled the glutinous rice flour, halved the baking soda and reduced the amount of sugar but used the same amount (100g) of mashed sweet potatoes? Sorry for the question and thank you for your time! :)

  4. Jess,
    Thanks for ur visits here :)
    Yes, i did some admendment. I found that this produce more soft dough.

  5. Thank you for your reply Pink Lady! Also forgot to ask, around how much red bean paste did you use per ball? Did you use store-bought paste or homemade paste? Thanks! :)

  6. I bought fm bakery shop. I never weight for it per ball, just agak-agak.
