Happy Winter Solstice

My mum usually made the glutinous rice balls for us. I had seen her make them but I never learned from her. Yesterday I decided to try making them as my mum was not at home with us. She's back at our home town.

I gave her a call yesterday afternoon. She gave me all the instructions to be followed. 

Got ready the glutinous rice flour. I have some castor sugar at home.
I only used about one third of the small packet of glutinous rice flour.
Firstly, I mixed a tablespoon of castor sugar with the flour.
Then I gradually poured some warm water onto the flour as I kneaded it.
Mixed some fresh pandan juice with the dough
It still looked white. Not enough pandan juice.
I quickly rolled the dough into small balls.
Poured them into hot water and let it boiled.
Cooked balls then floated on the surface of the water
Sieved them out and..
put them into the cold water.
When they were cooled down, I strained them up and put into a cup. 
Then I added the rock sugar syrup.

They were up to my taste.
Not too sweet and the balls were chewy too.
Yummy!

  5. Happy Winter Solstice to Wenn and your family!! wow, you already cooked the glutinous rice balls for dessert last night?? hehe, they looked nice but a little too pale.. we always have some red colorings, so that our glutinous rice balls looks better in red and pink, and also gula melaka for the sweet soup.. :)
