Sesame balls with red bean paste

Genevieve | Dec 25, 2005 07:55 PM

Not sure if there is a more proper name for these, but they consist of a sweet red bean paste filling surrounded by a gooey, sweetish dough that's coated in sesame seeds and then usually deep fried. They sell some in the bakery section at 99 ranch, but I would like to know if there is a place I can buy a bag of these frozen to heat up at my leisure (they taste just as good baked in the toaster oven, I think--they key is to brown the sesame seeds). I live in West LA near Santa Monica so hopefully someone can suggest something within a reasonable distance of there. (And if not, I'm sure there will one day be a special 20 mile trip for some resaurant that could be combined with sesame ball procuring.)
