Glutinous rice balls can be used in a salty version or also for sweet dishes. Here I have made a sweet version. The filling consists of blended nuts, these are coated by the glutinous rice balls and usually these are served in a sweet soup. This is a very nice dessert and if you like you can substitute the filling by anything you prefer.

    Hello Maria
    My name is Birgit, I live in Germany and I love asian cuisine. Last week I stumbeld over your youtube account and then on this website. In some of your recepies you use wheat starch. I have two questions on this, where do you get your wheat starch? And can I use corn or potato starch instead ´cause I have a mild wheat intolerance.
    Thanks for your help

      Hallo Birgit, I bought my wheat starch in asian supermarkets. Corn or potato starch can’t be used instead of wheat starch because the texture is different. Viele Grüße ^^

    Thanks for letting me know. I will try the 8 treasures rice balls as soon as I get my fingers on some wheat starch, there is an asianmarket close to me. Thankfully I can have wheat in small doses.
    Danke nochmal

    Hello, Maria!
    I’ve just found your site. I am going to try your glutinous rice dough for the balls. I like this dessert, but my attempts to cook rice balls before weren’t good at all.
    Maria, may I ask you to share a recipe, which I like very much too? It’s a sweet congee, made from glutinous brown rice (or may be black), red beans, green beans, peanuts, oats, barley and etc. Creme, almost clear consistency, some ingredients are chewy, some are melted in mouth. I cooked many times in different ways, but beans are not sweet and soft enough and in general I don’t like the test. Maria, I hope, I’m not asking too much. Thank you!
