  • 80g (2.oz) unrefined sugar
  • 100g (3.oz) sesame flour
  • 20g (.oz) cornflour (cornstarch


1. Preheat the oven to 130C(265°F).

2. To remove the water from okara, spread okara on a lined baking tray and bake for

   30 minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon halfway through cooking. You want okara to weigh

   between 70g and 85g (2.–3oz) before you start. Take out the okara and allow it to cool down.

3. Increase the oven temperature to 170C(340°F).

4. Place the okara in a food processor and process until fine.

5. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and whisk until creamy.

6. Add the flour, cornflour and okara into the butter mixture and mix. Do not over mix.

7. Shape into 2 logs and wrap them in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

   Remove and discard plastic wrap.

8. Slice into 1cm-thick (. in) rounds. Place on  trays and bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

 Tip: You can dry the okara by cooking in a nonstick frying pan. Cook the okara in the frying pan over a medium heat and keep stirring with a wooden spoon for about 10 to 15 minutes.  If you use butter, soften the butter at room temperature, before adding the sugar.It is very   important to process the okara in a food processor to create a light and crunchy texture.
