Glutenous rice desert

At Silin night market there is an elderly deaf couple who have a little portable cart in the middle of one of the aisles.  There is always a line of people waiting to get these little, gelatinous, rice desserts. People mingle and watch as they do the steps, oh so quickly.

The scoop some rice powder into this wooden cup.

Add some shaved peanuts or sesame seeds.

Tap down, put a wooden lid on.

Put cup on top of a dowel that somehow sends steam into the cup.

Within a few moments, the rice powder has become a sticky, gelatinous mass.

My favorite are the peanut because they are a little bit sweeter.
