Deep fried sesame Balls
200g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/8 tsp salt
65g sugar
65ml UHT milk
1 tbsp margarine or butter, melted
1/2 cup sesame seeds

150g red bean paste (available at bakery shops)
To prepare the filling: Portion out red bean paste into small balls of about 5g each.

Put sifted dried ingredients, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Pour in the milk and stir in the melted margarine or butter to mix into a soft dough.

Divide the dough into portions of 2530g each and wrap around a small ball of filling. Shape into a neat round ball. Dip the ball lightly in water, then dip into the sesame seeds to coat all over. Press the sesame seeds tightly around. Heat enough oil in a wok and slide in the sesame balls.

Deep-fry the balls over a gentle low heat, stirring frequently until they turn lightly golden.

Remove the sesame seed balls and drain them well on absorbent paper towels.
