Glutinous rice balls

It was Winter Solstice 冬至 yesterday. I had my first attempt in doing glutinous rice balls. Being my first attempt, I don’t want to be so ambitious. I bought all ready-made ingredients.

The outcome was okay. I’m not skillful enough. The balls keep breaking when I knead them and all peanut fillings came out. Lucky, I have enough dough.

Oh well! Practice make perfect. I’ll be better …. next year.

  • Glutinous rice dough
  • Grind peanut
  • Gula Malaka according to taste
  • 3 Pandan leaves
  • 2 slices of Ginger
How to do it:
  1. Knead dough into a ball.
  2. Fatten it.
  3. Put some grinded peanut in the middle.
  4. Slowly knead to close-up the opening and into a ball.
  5. In a pot of water, add gala malaka, pandan leaves and ginger.
  6. Wait for gala malaka to melt before adding the glutinous rice balls.
  7. It’s ready when the balls float.
