Peanut-Butter Dumplings in TO?
In New York, I tried some odd-sounding but phenomenal-tasting peanut-butter dumplings at a Thai restaurant (the name of which I've forgotten). They were a dessert item on their menu. I have yet to find them since though I've kept a look-out for them, so I was wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about and/or has come accross them in Toronto? These dumplings were such a treat, I'd love to track some down and I would appreciate any tips that could help! Thanks!
YUMMMM... i love that stuff, if it's the same thing you're talking about. The ones I know of as dessert are actually sesame/sesame paste-filled.. I think that could be mistaken for peanut butter. They could be regular sesame or black sesame and are enclosed by a slightly thick whitish dough stuff. In my house, we serve it in light ginger soup.
Anyway, you should definitely be able to find this in any Asian grocery store. Most likely in the frozen food section and you'll just have to boil it.
They sell peanut flavoured mochi at the T&T. They're really yummy. The T&T at Cherry St. stores them in the open refrigerated section next to the cakes in the baked good section. It's made in Japan and (I think) in a package of 12. Each mochi ball is the size of a gum ball. The filling is not peanut butter but some powdery concoction. The taste is very peanut buttery though.
