Eight Treasure Sticky Rice Treat
INGREDIENTS: 2 1/2-3 cups cooked sticky rice (sweet rice) 2 tablespoons butter 5 tablespoons sugar 3 oz dried tropical fruit (pineapple, apricots, papaya, kiwi, raisins, apple and craisins) 1 cup sweetened Chinese style red bean paste (comes in a can) 1 pinch black sesame seeds ½ cup Ying’s Sweet & Sour Sauce
Grease a big bowl with butter and put a thin layer of the dried fruit on the bottom of the bowl. Then add 2/3 of the cooked sticky rice on top of the dried fruit.
Spread sweet red bean paste over the sticky rice, and then cover with the rest of the sticky rice.
Steam in a steamer or in a pan for 8-10 minutes. Remove the bowl from the steamer and cover it with a serving plate. Invert the bowl and serving plate, so the plate is on the bottom.
Remove the bowl. Pour Ying’s Sweet and Sour Sauce over the rice dessert, then sprinkle black sesame seeds on top. Enjoy this Chinese traditional sweet treat!
