Sesame Balls (Jin deu)
Sesame Balls (Jin deu)
While Chinese bakeries sell sesame seed balls throughout the year, they are especially popular during the Chinese New Year season. These sweet, deep-fried puffs of dough coated in sesame seeds are a mainstay of dim sum houses, but at New Year's they take on special meaning. Their round shape and golden color are considered lucky, and the fact that the dough balls swell as they're fried and increase several times in size is a happy metaphor for a small venture growing and bringing back a large return. Sesame seed balls are traditionally filled with a bit of sweet red bean paste - these scrumptious Chinese pastries are the equivalent to a jelly doughnut, only lighter and fluffier.
