Ingredients to make Tang Yuan - Sweet Rice Flour Balls

  • For the dough:
  • 1 cup Glutinous Rice flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Filling Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • For the Syrup:
  • 1/2 Cup Brown sugar/Raw Cane sugar
  • 2 inch ginger

How to make Tang Yuan - Sweet Rice Flour Balls

  1. Take the glutinous flour in a bowl, make a well at the centre, add in the oil and required water to make a dough. Pour in water in a small quantity to make the dough. Knead the dough for a while and keep it aside.
  2. Dry roast the sesame seeds and coconut separately. Remove the ingredients from the heat before it changes it's colour.
  3. Blend the sesame seeds and coconut along with sugar to form a coarse mixture.
  4. To prepare the sugar syrup, in a sauce pan, add in the sugar and 2.5 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Now add in the ginger slices.
  5. Take the rice dough, divide the dough in equal parts and roll it out into round shapes. Make a well at the centre as we do for mothak/kozhukattai, add in the filling and close the opening, make it even by rolling it between the palms.
  6. Now drop the balls one at a time into the sugar syrup. After dropping it into the syrup, flip the balls so that they don't stick at the bottom.
  7. The balls float on the top once they are cooked. It takes around 3-4 mintues to get it cooked depending on the size of the rice balls.
  8. To serve, transfer the balls to a bowl and add the required syrup on top of the balls. The dessert tastes good while it is hot.

My Tip:

1.While making the dough, add water in stages and make it sure it's not too watery or tight as the dough will sag while making the balls if it is watery and crack if it is tight. 2. After removing the cooked rice balls from the syrup, either place the each ball separately or pour some sugar syrup on the top, if not they will stick to each other. 3. If the sugar syrup gets thick, add in the boiling water to make it thin. 4. These balls can be cooked in boiling water and later added to the sugar syrup.
