Spread sesame seeds on tray or baking sheet and set aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine salt, sugar, flour and baking powder. Gradually add
water, stirring with wooden spoon to make a smooth dough. Mix
in sesame oil.
Pour dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. Shape kneaded dough into a
long roll about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Cut into 1 1/2-inch
sections, pat each piece into a little ball, and flatten to
about 1/2-inch thick. Moisten with a little water and press
wet side into sesame seeds. Coat thoroughly. Fry cakes, seed
side up, in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat for about
5 minutes but do not let them burn.
Arrange fried cakes seed side up on a baking sheet and bake under preheated broiler
for about 4 to5 minutes. They are done when the sesame seeds
begin to turn brown and smell fragrant.
