Tang Yuan are actually glutinous rice balls. They are made using glutinous rice flour and water and eaten in a sweet soup.
These are usually eaten during the winter solstice and during the 15th day of Chinese New Year.
But they can be easily enjoyed now as frozen packets of tang yuan are sold in supermarkets n also sold in hawker stalls which sells sweet desserts.
I made these using a recipe from Rasa Malaysia.
Please follow her steps
I did increase some flour and for the soup I boiled again another batch for more soup as I love more soup
My family enjoyed this very much!
The dough - mix 2 cups of glutinous rice flour with 6 oz water use a measuring cup
The rice balls will float when cooked
Another way to eat these tang yuan is to roll them the size of fish balls.
After cooking roll the balls while still wet but not dripping wet into sugar peanut powder.
