Glutinous Rice Dough
2 1/4 cups glutinous rice flour
1/4 cup potato flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups boiling water
To make wrapper: Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil for several minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the first 4 ingredients. Now, measure the amount of water
needed and return that to a boil and immediately pour the boiling water over the
dry ingredients. Mix well and knead on floured board for 3 or 4 minutes.
2 cups glutinous rice flour
1 1/2 sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
(about 1 1/4 pound)
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/4 cup water
To make wrapper: Mix the first 2 ingredients in a bowl. Dissolve brown sugar in
water and bring to a rolling boil. Immediately add water to flour mixture and
stir until dough is firm. Knead lightly for a few minutes until dough is well
COMMENTS: This dough is usually deep fried with meat or sweet fillings. The
texture is most interesting because the wrappers become soft and chewy on the
inside and crunchy and crispy on the outside.
Yields 2 1/2 to 3 dozen wrappers.
