Maybe Not…Posted: January 27, 2009
Phil came home sick today, so no big and crazy dinner. I had already started the rice balls when he got home, so here is a lovely picture of them. They are very tasty! I must thank Maangchi for her excellent video tutorial on how to make these. An important note: make sure you don’t use too much water! Start kneading by hands when the dough gets big clumps. I kept mixing it around and adding water the first time and ended up with a sticky and pasty mess that clung to my fingers like leeches. Seriously, I could not get this dough off my hands until I scrubbed it with a stainless steel brush.
I used ground up sesame seeds with sugar and then crushed coconut (where did that come from?) with sugar as toppings. Funny story about all of this…
Looking over my purchases, I realized that I didn’t get sweet rice flour, but sweet rice! I went back to the store and they said to pick whatever I wanted to fulfill the price. I got rice flour, wasabi peas and “desicated” coconut. Yup. The results were amazing.
