Tangerine Tang Yuan

Tang Yuan is widely known in the Chinese community. It is not only eaten during the winter solstice festival but it is also commonly eaten during the Lunar New Year.

Instead of the regular usually coloured glutinous ball, make this tangerine looking glutinous ball for your family. It could be a good way to start off the new year by bonding with your family members.

  • Wrap the red bean paste into tang yuan dough. Place cloves in the middle of the tang yuan and press it in.
  • For the syrup, boil 1litre of water together with Chek Hup Ginger Brown Sugar and pandan leaves.
  • Once it comes into a boil, place the tang yuan and boil.
