2 cups glutinous rice flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 cup of sweetened lotus seed paste
vegetable oil for deep frying
Combine flour, sugar and water in a large bowl and stir until well mixed. Knead the dough until it is soft and smooth.
Place the dough onto a lightly oiled surface and roll the dough into a 16 inch log.
Cut the dough into 1" pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Roll out each ball into a flat circle. It should end up being about 5cm in diameter.
Divide and roll out the lotus paste into 16 balls.
Place each lotus paste ball in the centre of each round piece of dough. Then draw the dough up, pinching the edges together to form a ball.
With lightly greased hands, roll each ball into a smooth round circle.
Deep fry the balls in 325 F vegetable oil until golden. (About 2-2.5 minutes)
