DIRECTIONS

  • In a pot combine water and sugar bring it to a boil then turn heat off, set aside.
  • Divide liquid into 4 parts then add drops of food colour on each container.
  • Combine cornstarch and glutinous rice flour then place ¾ cups of this mixture to each container with liquid while still hot.
  • Mix the each container until it forms a smooth dough. Form a small flat circle dough roughly the size of the diameter of a drinking glass, place a heaping tablespoon of the red bean paste then seal to form a sphere. Do it with the remaining dough.
  • Place in a lightly greased steamer then steam for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from steamer then roll in lightly toasted flour to avoid them from sticking together. Serve, you can enjoy them hot or cold.
