Buchi or Sesame balls are deep fried rice cake that are fully covered with crispy sesame seeds. Traditionally filled with sweet red mung beans but I find Ube tastes way better. Also, the sweet mung beans takes forever to cook. Though, you have the option to purchase a ready made one in can which is normally available at an Asian market. But, using Ube Jam as a filling is a bomb! I promise, you will definitely love this!
See how full it is to the core unlike other Buchi recipes with hollow or empty part in the middle.
Also, a combination of water and glutinous rice flour will serve as a gel or coating to make the sesame seeds stick to the rice balls. Deep fry all the coated dough and voila, you have a delicious homemade Buchi with Ube filling.
