Korean Sesame Glutinous Buns

Labels: , ,

Have you ever cooked or baked something following the recipe from just drawings or pictures, sort of  a rebus baking/cooking. I bought a packet of Korean ready to bake mix glutinous buns with black sesame seeds. The packet doesn't have instructions in English, but at least the ingredients are written in English. I have guessed from the photo on the package that the buns may be tapioca flour because they look like pão de queijo. These sweet version of the buns are indeed made with tapioca starch, wheat flour, sugar, fat-free milk solids, and other ingredients. The buns are slightly sweet and salty, are crunchy on the outside with airy and chewy crumb. Really really really yummy. 

From the illustrations and the corresponding amounts in grams and milliliter, it's easy to understand how much eggs and liquid to add, the weight of each bun, oven temperature, and how many minutes to bake the buns. Here is my "translation" based on the above:
  1. In a bowl, whisk together 60 grams of egg/s and 70 ml water [or maybe milk]
  2. Stir in one 250-gram packet of mix until fully combined.
  3. Divide dough into 40-gram pieces, [you'll have about 12 pieces] and place on a sheet pan. Spray with water.
  4. Bake in a preheated 180°C (356°F) oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden.  
There, that was easy. (^__^)

They are similar to bicho bicho but baked, not fried.

You can get it from any Korean grocery store. Sorry, I don't know precisely what the ingredients are.
