FRIED MOCHI SURPRISE

I have had a similar treat like this at a Chinese Restaurant, but the filling was not a combination of coconut and peanuts, rather, you had a choice of either. The restaurant however, did coat their mochi balls in sesame seeds. I don’t really know the origin of this recipe, be it Chinese or Filipino ?? I added the sesame seeds to the original recipe, shared with me by a Filipino co-worker friend of mine. She loved to bring treats for us, often after having her family over for a gathering.
