From Mum's Recipe

Winter Solstice Festival is drawing near. As usual, we are going to celebrate this special occasion with all my family members, sitting at the round dining table for a good reunion dinner. Although Winter Solstice Festival will be coming soon at about 18days time, mum has made us her special ‘Tang Yuan’.





We are always happy to have mum’s homemade glutinous rice balls. Like what she did last year, all the steps and processes from grinding to dough making and from raw materials to the perfectly spherical-shaped ‘Tang Yuan’ are done by her all alone.






The glutinous rice balls are made by grinded finely selected glutinous rice.
As for colouring, we use only those natural colouring agents
Orange from the fresh carrot juice
Green from the pandan leaves juice
Blue is from a kind of blue flower

Instead of having the warm ginger soup this year, we have soya bean and red bean soup.
Soya bean goes well with the red bean paste glutinous rice balls.
And the red bean soup goes well with the small spherical glutinous rice balls (without red bean paste).





Yum~ just sapu all~
