Black Sesame Filling 2 Ways

Have been looking for ways to finish my left over black sesame powder before it expire and finally found a recipe online. All I need are black sesame powder, icing sugar, some sesame oil and enough canola oil for smoothness. Mix everything in bowl until a smooth paste is form and chill it in the fridge before use.

Now that I have the filling, what's next?
Green tea black sesame mochi. The mochi recipe and instruction can be found from LCOM. I really like this green tea version, very soft and refreshing especially if you eat it right away. Or you can chill in the fridge. I especially like the chilled version.

Black sesame steam bun. This is one of my favorite steam bun besides the egg custard bun. Not many dim sum place has it but you can certainly get the frozen from Asian Groceries store. I prepared the bun with the store bought pre-package pau flour. The sesame filling was rather dry not sure whether because I over steam the bun? Nevertheless, it still taste ok.

Oh yeah, I love this green tea mochi, so fragrant and soft better than the store-bought one. The one I bought was actually hard!

I don't know why but I don't like black sesame filling, I think it's an enquired taste.

Mochi! I like matcha mochi filled with azuki red beans. For sesame filling, I like those mochi cooked in desserts soups :)

tigerfish, i like the black sesame tong yuen too.. but just too lazy to make it since hubby is not a big fan of dessert soup.

Sweet-tooth, Thanks for visiting my blog.
Here's the estimate amount I used to made the black sesame filling for both the bun and mochi

1 cup of sesame powder
1 cup of powder sugar( you maybe use more depend on your sweet tolerance)
couple drops of sesame oil
about 1/2 cup canola oil or vegetable oil.

Mix everything together in a bowl and let it set in the fridge. For mochi filling,I microwaved the filling for couple minutes before use. Hope this helps :)
