I saw a lot of bloggers already posted "Tang Yuan" , why I'm late? This is because I almost forgot today is " Tang Yuan" celebration, hehehe, till my previous babysitter called me to invite my kids go to her house to celebrate "Winter Solstice", then I just realized it. So I quickly ran to supermarket to buy a packet of glutinous rice and cook the "Tang Yuan". If you do not know why Chinese celebrate the "Winter Solstice', you may refer to "Dodol & Mochi", she has a quite detail explanation.
I still prefer the simple way of "Tang Yuan", this was served when I was a child, my mum just cook this simple way, no fancy ingredients added, also partly we were poor at that time..
-Desmond help me to shape "Tang Yuan"..

Glutinous rice flour - 200g
-mix all ingredients and knead to a smooth dough. Shape into small round shape.
