Winter Solstice! 冬至。汤圆


Happy Winter Solstice! I am a bit late in posting this tang yuan (glutinous rice ball), reason being I was hesitating on what type of tang yuan should I made. Idea one, a traditional version-hmm...I have nothing to make the tang yuan become red. Idea two- the angry bird version, erm..not a bad idea since angry bird is also in round shape, but...tang yuan is so small and I have no tool to make the eyes, peak, etc..Idea three, a basketball or a football version? Isn't it cute when you see so many tiny basket ball or football in a bowl? But, how should I make it? Where should I start? I do not have a petite hand to make this small little cute thing, I will ruin the whole project...Then this idea four came across my mind, the marble effect tang yuan by using pumpkin. Yes, I made it!

I didn't measure the ingredients properly and therefore no recipe for this post. Please refer to the following blog if you are looking for a tang yuan recipe. These are some fabulous blogs.

  2. haha....that's just like me when I'm deciding what to make- a billion different ideas but minor problems with each ;) Love the colour and the marble effect in these tang yuan- I usually make mine with a boring white colour, I should try something fancy like this next time!
