This pastry has a thick & chewy shell covered in sesame seeds. On the inside is a sweet, yellow colored filling which is made of lotus root. The lotus seeds are mixed to a paste and then sugar is added to them.

The flavor is quite mellow, and it you like the mix of sweet and savory you will enjoy this pastry.
