    Default Top ten weirdest donuts around the world

    There is one donut that I would not want to try, although I would give
    the others a sample. :-P

    Some of those aren't weird. They are common in other countries,
    and it is wrong to lump them with the oddities. (I see they don't
    mention curry donuts, which by their standards would probably be
    odder than the bean paste donuts.)

    The one I would hesitate to try is #5, the Krispy Kreme burger with
    cheese. A hamburger made with krispy kreme's just doesn't sound right,
    although I would eat Monte Cristo sandwiches when I was a kid.

    Funny... one of our oriental restaurants serves what appears to be a
    sweet bean paste-filled donut hole, covered with sesame seeds. I like
    them for dessert. They're small rather than supersized, the sesame
    seeds add nuttiness and the bean paste is not cloyingly sweet. And
    they're not dry as sand like the other dessert items at the buffet.

    It's funny because here in Parts Unknown we don't often get weird
    foods. Places that would be ordinary specialty shops in a larger town
    just can't make it here. It's only been the last two years or so that
    a coffee shop was able to stay in business.

    Mmmm. Yes, I like those bean-paste-filled donuts. It's nice that
    you do get to enjoy them there since it doesn't sound like a
    foodie's paradise.

    Trinidadian doubles are deep fried donut pastry filled with curried
    chick pies. They are awesome.

    I love those sesame balls! They aren't that hard to make if you want a
    recipe. Provided you can get the red bean paste, or are willing to make
    some.

    That's true everywhere. There's always something 'weird' in every
    locality. Just a different weirdness.

    I love sesame balls. All of the ones around here are made with a rice
    based dough that ends up jelled not puffy. Sesame balls are the size of
    a donut hole but without any air pockets in the dough the texture is too
    far from a donut for me to call it that.

    Bean paste makes sense as a cooking ingredient. Peanut butter is pea
    paste. Frijoles refrijoles is bean paste. Almond paste is nut paste.
    All work fine as ingredients therefore paste made from sweet beans works
    fine as well.

    They may not have been fried at the right temperature. They are meant to
    be made from rice flour, usually the glutinous sort.

    It does indeed. Red bean paste or mung bean paste work equally well.

    Many years ago, a Japanese man mentioned that one of his favorite
    sandwiches was made from red bean paste. My daughter had that as
    one of her school lunch staples after that.

    Easy to do.

    Boil the adzuki beans until very soft. Drain well. Mash thoroughly.
    Remove the skins, if they bother you, by pushing through a sieve or use
    a food mill. Add some sugar to taste and fresh lard. Usually about twice
    as much lard as sugar, by volume. Heat well, with stirring until a thick
    paste results. Let cool before using.

    Better than the tinned paste It freezes well but not for too long.

    LOL! Well, one reason why I like it rough is because it is easier
    to spread when cold. But then I'd probably prefer some texture
    anyway.

    Never really thought about it. Rarely worry about removing bean skins
    anyway. Maybe when I cook garbanzos/chick peas.

    I've never cooked dried garbanzo beans... are bean skins really a
    *problem* or is it just a visual thing?

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.
