How to Make Asian-style buchi
This video is a demonstration of how to make Asian-style buchi. The ingredients are sweet rice flour, sesame seeds, peanut oil, water, and sweetened red bean paste. The first step is to put the rice flour into a mixing bowl and mix in water. When it is the consistency of mashed potatoes, shape a ball of dough in your hands, to about the size of a ping pong ball. Make a hollow space with a small measuring spoon and add a spoonful of bean paste. Shape the dough around the bean paste to cover it and make the ball into a sphere. Drop the ball into a bowl of sesame seeds and shake it around to cover the ball completely. Heat the oil in a pan and carefully lower the balls into the oil. Cook them until the sesame seeds are brown, and drain them on paper towels to absorb extra oil. The narrator speaks a mix of English and Tagalog, but it's easy to follow because every step is shown on screen. By following the steps in this video, you can make authentic buchi.
