2 tbsp green tea
75g glutinous rice flour
35g rice flour
¼ tsp salt
100ml water
20g palm sugar, chopped into small pieces
1/2 tsp toasted white sesame seeds

In a mixing bowl, combine the flours and salt. Add the water and stir with a spoon or your hands until a dough forms.

Divide the dough into 12 equal parts. Roll each portion into a ball.

Press 1 piece of dough with your thumb, forming a small pocket in the centre. Place ½ teaspoon of palm sugar inside. Seal the pocket by squeezing the mixture together and roll it into a small ball again. Repeat with the remaining dough and palm sugar. Place the dumplings on a tray lined with plastic wrap.

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add the tea. Add the dumplings, in two batches, and cook for 6 minutes.

Remove with a slotted spoon, drain, and transfer to a serving platter.

Sprinkle with the black and white sesame seeds. Serve hot.
