Tang yuan soup

When I was younger, Mum would make tang yuan soup on December the 22nd every year for some tang yuan festival. However, when we went to Taiwan, they seem to sell it on a daily basis at the shops so I made Mum make it for me when we came back. For those of you that don't know, tang yuan is a glutinous rice ball usually found in ginger soup.

Tang Yuan Recipe


Rice Ball

1 cup glutinous rice flour
1 tspn sugar


3 - 4 slices of ginger
pot of water
brown sugar to taste


Add water to glutinous rice flour and sugar until a doughy texture is produced
Separate into 4 parts, add colours of choice
Roll dough into little balls

Boil pot of water and add brown sugar to taste, take off stove

Boil a new pot of water and drop glutinous balls in
Take out the balls when they float and place into ginger soup
