In Japan, this Chinese dish is called Goma Dango or also known as the Sesame Dumpling. The sesame dumpling pastry is coasted with sesame seeds on the outside which is very crispy and chewy. Inside the pastry is a large hollow which was caused by the expansion of the dough. It starts as a small dough ball but once it’s deep fried, it will puff up into the oversized rice cracker-like rice ball. It is often sold at street fairs, in Chinese districts or at various restaurants just like this one.
