Pumpkin Red Bean Balls vs Gula Melaka Steamed Cake with Sweet Potato

Assorted tea snacks for Bake King March recipes
March is coming to the end and this month my baking project with Bake King features some quick and easy Asian tea snacks such as Pumpkin Red Bean Balls and Gula Melaka Steamed Cake with Sweet Potato. Pumpkin Red Bean Balls has a very soft texture when bite and it pairs well with the sweet red bean paste which makes it sort of like the Mochi (Japanese rice cake made of mochigome).



PUMPKIN RED BEAN BALLS


Pumpkin Red Bean Balls
The concept for this Pumpkin Red Bean Balls is quite similar to the Pumpkin Ondeh Ondeh recipe which I shared before years back. But this time instead of the usual grated gula melaka or dessicated coconut fillings, I decided to fill these soft and yummy pumpkin balls with red bean paste to give it a rather Japanese "mochi" taste.   And these pumpkin balls also remains soft even after half a day at room temperature.
