Buchi Sweetened mung beans are deliciously wrapped in glutinous rice flour and deep fried to make this yummy Pinoy snack. The most famous establishment that serves this in the Philippines would be Chowking . It is a Chinese fast-food chain owned by the largest local fast-food company in the Philippines, Jollibee corp. I remember ordering buchi as a dessert after having some Siopao Asado. It really tastes great especially when you have the gulaman drink by your side. Here are Buchi Ingredients. 1 1/2 cups sweet rice flour. 3/4 cup water. 1/4 cup sweet red bean paste. 1/2 cup sesame seeds. 2 to 3 cups cooking oil. I made these mung bean-filled treats for the first time today and I am happy to report, my venture was successful. After a couple of hours of making the filling, stuffing, rolling and frying, I had about 2 dozens of golden sesame balls to enjoy with my ice-cold Diet Coke. There are several types of filling that can be used for Buchi. The most common is the sweetened red bean paste while the ube and condensed milk mixtures are also becoming popular. You may use any filling that you want as long as it suits your taste.
Here are instructions on how to cook Buchi. 1st step. In a mixing bowl, combine the sweet rice flour and water then mix wel (This should form a dough). 2nd step. Separate the dough into individual pieces. 3rd step. Roll each individual piece of dough until a spherical (round) shape is formed. 4th step. Press the center of the spherical dough until the shape becomes concave (there should be a hollow spot in the center). 5th step. Scoop the sweet red bean paste using an ordinary teaspoon or measuring spoon then fill it in the hollow space of the dough (amount is up to you, just don’t overfill). 6th step. Seal the dough and roll it once more until the shape is spherical. 7th step. Place the sesame seeds in a bowl then roll the sphere shaped dough over it. Make sure that the seeds stick on the dough. 8th step. Heat the pan and pour-in the cooking oil. 9th step. When the cooking oil is very hot, deep fry the dough until the sesame seed’s color turns golden brown (about 2 to 3 minutes). 10th step. Remove the cooked buchi from the pan and drain excess oil. 11th and last step. Serve and Enjoy!
