Buchi is the Filipino term for Jian dui, which is a type of fried Chinese pastry made from glutinous rice flour. The pastry is coated with sesame seeds on the outside and is crisp and chewy. Inside the pastry is a large hollow, caused by the expansion of the dough. 

Buchi Recipe


  • ¼ cup sweet red bean paste
  • 1& ½ cups sweet rice flour
  • ¾ cup water
  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • 2 to 3 cups cooking oil


  1. In a mixing bowl, form a dough by combining the sweet rice flour and water then mix well.
  2. Divide the dough into small separate individual pieces.
  3. Roll each individual piece of dough until a spherical (round) shape is formed.
  4. Make a hollow spot in the center of the round dough by pressing the center.
  5. Using a teaspoon or a small measuring spoon, scoop the sweet red bean paste and stuff it in the hollow space of the dough. Fill us much as you can but don’t overfill.
  6. Seal the dough and roll it once more until the shape is spherical again.
  7. Place the sesame seeds in a bowl then roll the dough over it. Make sure that the seeds stick on the dough.
  8. Heat the pan and pour-in the cooking oil.
  9. When the cooking oil is very hot, deep fry the dough until the sesame seed’s colorturns golden brown. This will take about 2 to 3 minutes.
  10. You now have cooked Buchi! Remove them from the pan and drain excess oil.
  11. Serve hot and enjoy!
