Chinese New Year Cuisine – Steamed Tofu and Glutinous Rice Ball

Preparation: 30 mins Cooking time: 20 mins

Ingredients (makes 10-12 pieces)
° 50g glutinous rice
° 1 firm tofu/beancurd (225g), washed, pat dry with kitchen paper and mashed
° 2-3 Chinese dried mushrooms, soaked and chopped
° 1 vegetarian ham slice, chopped
° ½ carrot, chopped
° 2 tablespoons self-raising flour
° 1 tablespoon corn starch
° 1 teaspoon sesame oil
° sugar, salt and pepper, to taste

Method
1. Wash and soak glutinous rice for 4-6 hours. Drain well and set aside.
2. Combine the mashed tofu, vegetarian ham, carrot, mushrooms, salt, pepper, sugar, sesame oil, flours and mixed well.
3. Using your hand, shape the mixture into 10-12 balls. Coat them evenly with the glutinous rice.
4. Steam for 15-20 minutes. Leave the glutinous rice balls to rest, covered, for 10 minutes then serves.

Tip
1. Vegetarian mock meat can be used instead of tofu. For this case, self-raising flour is not required.
