Onde-Onde Ketawa (Javanese style sesame seed balls)

This is traditional snack from Indonesia, i used to eat them when i was little, the price for each is about RP.100; (at that time), i don't have any idea how much it cost now (any idea??). its pretty easy to make and yummy too!, this is my first trial of this recipe, I'd say its successful.
I'm so happy when i saw them raising their size, on my deep fried oil. here is the recipe, that i got from my book called "Ragam kue Tradisional By Saji"...
