Sesame rice balls is a deep fried dessert recipe. Earlier preparations are required for this recipe. The secret behind its perfection lies in making right dough for this and sufficient skill in deep frying the balls. After 2-3 trials you will be able to make this perfectly. Usually this recipe is prepared with rice flour, but I am making it with soaked and further grinded rice. I found its texture was better than prepared with rice flour, hence this recipe includes whole rice in it. Ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:

Rice- 1 and ½ cups
Sugar- ½ cup
Sesame seeds or white til- 1 tablespoon
Milk-1/2 cup
Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate- 2 pinches

Instructions: Wash and soak rice in plenty of water.

Change the water wash them again once.
Pour them on a strainer so that extra water drains out.
Place rice in a grinding jar, add milk and sugar with it, grind it to fine paste.>

Check rice by pressing it with fingers if small particles of rice are seen grind it again for 2-3 minutes.
Transfer this mixture in a bowl, add sesame seeds to it( preserve 1 teaspoon seeds for further process)
Mix well for 3-4 minutes , mixture will become light and fluffy.
Now add baking soda to it, mix once.
Cover the mixture and place it in fridge for 6-8 hours.
After 8 hours you will see that mixture is thick enough, you can easily make balls of it .
Make small sized balls of it, heat sufficient oil in a pan or kadhai.
Sprinkle sesame seeds over the prepared balls, take one ball and slightly shape it in between your palms, so that sprinkled sesame seeds stick to it properly.
Prepare all the balls in the same manner.
Deep fry 5-6 balls at a time on medium to low heat as they starts browning from bottom, turn them and let them fry from another side.
Fry all the balls in the same manner, serve hot.
Notes: Adding milk and baking soda makes the ball soft and creamy inside.
You can easily make the balls with rice flour too, but placing batter in fridge for 6-8 hours is must for good texture and taste.
Deep frying them from medium to low flame will helps in cooking them properly, frying on high flame will change the color but they will remained uncooked inside.
