200g glutinous rice flour
1/2 cup water
2 pandan leaves - knotted
2 ginger slices
1 tbsp rock sugar
red bean paste
- Mix glutinous rice flour with the water, adding a little at a time. If it is too wet, add more flour, if it is too dry, add some water until a smooth and pliable dough is formed and does not stick to your hands.
- Divide the dough into bite-sized portions. Roll each portion into a ball and flatten it. Scoop a spoonful of red bean paste onto the centre of the flattened dough. Close the rice ball. Sprinkle some flour onto a tray. Place each ball onto the tray to prevent it from sticking.
- Boil a pot of water. Add ginger slices, sugar and pandan leaves. Boil under medium low heat for 20 mins.
- Cook the rice balls in the boiling water. They are ready when they float to the surface.
- Serve the dessert warm.
