The Winter Solstice Festival is one of the most important festivals celebrated by the Chinese and other East Asians during the winter solstice on or around Dec. 22.The Northern hemisphere on this day experiences the shortest daytime and longest nighttime. After the Winter Solstice, days will become longer and longer.
In some parts of Northern China, people eat dumplings on this day. But in parts of South China, people also eat tangyuan, a kind of stuffed small ball made of glutinous rice flour.
As a southerner, let me tell you how to cook the Tangyuan.
Some materials should be prepared:
1、 Glutinous rice flour;
2、 Hot water;
3、 Sweet or savoury fillings.
At first, you can put glutinous rice flour in a bowl and slowly add hot water until they mix into dough. Then you can pinch off the dough and roll them into small balls.Then, you can fill tangyuan with either sweet or savoury fillings and try to enwrap all the fillings into glutinous rice dough.At last, you can drop these balls into boiling water and cook them for about 8 minutes until they float. After that, ahahahaha….Just enjoy them!!!
