26 June 2012 marked the day of my new beginning of life. Is my marriage registration day with Simon and from here we begin our new chapter of life.
To begin this sweet moment and sweet memory, I am inspired to make do with the Chinese traditional way of dessert – Glutinous Rice Ball or “Tang Yuan” in Chinese.
“Tang Yuan” is a kind of Chinese dessert made from glutinous rice flour that mixed with a small amount of water to form balls and is then normally cooked and served in boiling sweetened syrup. “Tang Yuan” also well-known with its traditionally eaten together with the family by the Chinese families. The round shape of the glutinous balls symbolizes togetherness. It won’t be left out during the major Chinese Festivals, for example the Chinese New Year eve, Winter Solstice, etc and of course it will also serve on the wedding days.
To make it out of the ordinary, I have added sweet potatoes and also the some different colors on the rice balls to make it brighter and tastier. This is my first experience to serve it with coconut milk instead of the traditional way with sugary syrup. To my surprise its churn out great!
This is my first dessert recipe which I shared on my blog and I hope this dessert will bring you back to the “sweetest” moment of life too!
