Tang Yuan 汤圆

Today is the Winter Solstice Festival or Dōngzhì Festival (冬至) and we had glutinous rice ball, tang yuan (汤圆) as dessert after dinner.

We have prepared the syrup with Gula Melaka (also known as palm sugar) instead of castor sugar, pandan leaves is also put in when cooking the syrup to add the fragrant. We then boil the plain tang yuan and eat together with the syrup.
