I don’t really like the usual tang yuan or glutinous rice ball but I like those with fillings especially with peanut.
Went shopping the other day with my parents and I saw this frozen glutinous rice ball (RM4+) and decided to buy one to try.
It’s very easy to cook this. Great for lazy people like me ;p Just take out from the freezer, boil a pot of water, put the rice balls in and wait until they float. Add sugar to the water to taste.
Be careful though… They burst easily once they’re cooked as you can see in the photo, there are some peanuts in the syrup.
I really like it. Quick and easy.
Anyway, what I shared earlier is the lazy way. There’s a recipe provided at the back of the packet. I’ll share it here with you, also as a reference for myself:
2 packets of glutinous rice ball
250gm soya beans
15 cups of water (I have no idea 15 cups refer to big, medium or small cup, I guess if you want it thick then use medium or small else use big cups for more diluted soya milk)
Sugar (depending on how sweet you want it to be)
Make soya bean milk:
- Wash soya beans and soak it overnight.
- Blend the soya beans by adding water until it turns into liquid paste.
- Boil remaining water.
- Pour the soya bean paste into the boiled water and stir frequently until boil.
- Filter the boiled soya bean milk.
- Boil it again for 5 minutes.
If you want to save time or feel lazy, maybe just go to the market to buy the ready made soya bean milk will do. It’s the same thing. Not the box one OK? However, if you want to use the one from the box, I don’t think it’s wrong at all. It’s up to you.
Prepare glutinous rice balls:
- Take out from the freezer.
- Boil a pot of water.
- Put the rice balls in and wait until they float.
Serve the glutinous rice balls with the soya bean milk. Add sugar to taste.
