♥ Black Sesame Dumpling (Tang Yuan) ♥


Tang Yuan, aka glutinous rice dumpling, is a popular Chinese sweet during the Chinese New Year festival. It symbolizes togetherness and completeness of the family, which is also similarly served during the Mid Autumn Festival.



Nowadays, these dumplings often come in a variety of fillings such as red bean, peanut, egg custard or even green tea and purple sweet potato, but the most loved and common choices is black sesame filling.



When serve, it is delicious to go with a hot sweet soup. Hope this recipe can bring you sweet memories and loads of happiness.
*Adjust the sugar accordingly to see how sweet you want the filling to be. I used 2:1 ratio.

How to make black sesame dumpling (Tang Yuan):
  1. To make black sesame filling: In a bowl, combine black sesame powder, black sugar, peanut butter and vegetable, mix well until smooth.
  2. Divide equal parts and roll into balls. Cover with cling film and set aside.
  3. To make the glutinous rice dough: In a large bowl, mix glutinous rice flour, wheat starch and water. Keep kneading until the dough comes together into a small ball. Shape into a log.
  4. Take 1 heaping portion of the dough, flatten and wrap around 1 teaspoon sesame filling. Seal the edge and shape the balls gently.
  5. Bring a pot of water to boil and add cane sugar. When it melts and water comes to boil again, add the rice dumplings and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until they float to the surface.
  6. Serve hot.
