- 4 Tbsp. black sesame seeds (OR 1 package store-bought prepared black sesame seed paste)
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup brown or white sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup of glutinous rice flour (also called 'sticky rice flour')
- 1/2 can coconut milk
- 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts or cashews, crushed or ground
If you can find black sesame seed paste at your local Asian food store, by all means use that. If not, it's quite easy to make. First, place black sesame seeds in a coffee grinder. (To remove residual coffee bean dust from your grinder, simply wipe with a clean, dry rag or towel). Grind for about 30 seconds, or until sesame seeds break down into a thick and glossy powder.
