Looks like a great accident to me. Rub on some olive oil, garlic and herbs and you have a yummy snack!

It became the accompaniment for a bowl of spicy beef chili.
But oil/garlic/herbs would've been good too!

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

I cook mostly Portuguese food - but lots of influences though, so, let's call it "My style".

1. Cod-fish (Bacalhau) Polenta - adapted from a recipe from lucy_sg
2. Shrimp tortilla and salad.
3. Sea food (shellfish mostly) rice
4. Crème brûlée
5. Octupus rice

I love mochi balls, and buy them from the Asian store regularly with a sesame or peanut filling - would you mind detailing how you make them?

These look incredible! Is the red bean paste sweet? Can you post the recipe please?
125gms Glutinous rice flour
25gms sugar
65gms water
1 teaspoon baking powder

Dissolve the sugar with boiling water.

Place the rice flour in a large bowl. Make a "well" in the middle of the bowl and add the dissolved sugar and water mixture. Stir until you have a sticky dough, adding as much of the remaining 1/3 cup of boiling water as needed (don't add the water if not needed).

Pinch off a piece of dough roughly the size of a golf ball. Use your thumb to make a deep indentation in the dough and then the thumb and index fingers of both hands to form the dough into a cup. Roll 1 level teaspoon of sweet red bean paste into a ball. Place the red bean paste in the hole, and shape the dough over the top to seal. It is important to make sure the red bean paste is completely covered. Continue with the remainder of the dough.

Dip a ball into the small bowl of water (this will help the sesame seeds stick to the ball). Roll the ball over the sesame seeds. Repeat the process with the remainder of the balls.

Deep-fry the sesame seed balls, a few at a time, in the hot oil.

Once the sesame seeds turn light brown (about 2 minutes), use the back of a spatula or a large ladle to gently press the balls against the side of the wok or saucepan. Continue applying pressure as the balls turn golden brown and expand to approximately 3 times their normal size.

I adapted the recipe from:

http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2011/...y-summer-cake/

http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2010/...hocolate-cake/

I reduced the amount of sugar for both recipes.

Happy baking! :-)

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Yummy carrot cake!

Not much to look at... actually looks like its decorated by a 5 year old (i'm not very artistic)... but tastes really good! My boyfriend has already ate pretty much half of it and I only made it yesterday!
