Normally this fried snack is made of mashed sweet potato and glutinous rice flour. I used rice flour and plain flour instead since the glutinous rice flour is not available. After mixing they are stuffed with red bean paste or sweetened coconut then coated with white sesame seed.
Since sometime it explodes when you fry them that how it got his name. Anyway I have fried mine safely and turns out perfect despite the change of its shape.
When frying, use medium heat and constantly turns the kuih so it cooks evenly. Really pleased with the result of my experiment, it turns delicious..
