Happy Winter Soltice Festival 2009...



This morning I just realised it is Tang Yuen day again. I have been busy the last few days and I forgot to buy the ingredients to make my tang yuen (glutinous rice flour dumplings). I wanted to make some as I had miss making it last year. So off I went to Tesco and to my disappointment there were no glutinous flour and pandan leaves anymore in the big supermarket. Finally I decided to buy the ready made frozen ones which were just as nice with fillings of red beans, peanuts and my favorite black sesame. All I need is cook some syrup with rock sugar with a few slices of ginger and add in some pandan essence. I grind some glutinous rice and make some colored balls for added color but it is a bit hard.

Happy winter solstice and happy holidays to you and family. We have the same frozen glutinous rice balls selling here as well. I missed making tang yuan this year, too lazy. :P

I don't make my own glutinous balls anymore, too tedious.

I also like the ones with black sesame filling. We are one year older now. :P
