Recipe Video: Among Us Tang Yuan

Happy Winter Solstice everyone! This year, we made two types of tang yuan during the Dongzhi Festival - the traditional "round" tang yuan as well as "Among Us" tang yuan. Among Us is a popular mobile game which BabySumoKids love!

Among Us Tang Yuan (glutinous rice balls)
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 20-30 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves 4

200g glutinous rice flour
200ml water

Food colouring of your choice (blue, pink, green, yellow)

For the syrup
800ml water
3 pandan leaves, knotted
50g gula melaka (palm sugar)
2 inch ginger, sliced and crushed

To garnish
1 pandan leaf, cut into half and into 1 inch long and then knotted

50g roasted peanuts, crushed

1. First, make the syrup. Add water, old ginger, pandan leaves, and gula melaka to a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat for 15-20 minutes and remove from heat.

2. Place the glutinous rice flour into a large bowl. Gradually add water to form a stiff dough. Add more water or flour as required. 

3. Divide dough into a few portions, depending on how many colours you would like to make. Add a few drops of food colouring. Roll each firmly into the size of a marble ball. Place rice balls (Tang yuan) onto a plate.

4. For the Among Us tang yuan: Roll some dough into a ball. Press down using your finger, and then push up the bottom centre to form a "tooth" shape. Use some blue dough to make an oval glass.

5. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Put in the tang yuan and cook until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl. Spoon over ginger syrup. Garnish with a mini knotted pandan leaf. Serve with crushed peanuts.

  1. Aren't they supposed to be round and smooth like how you'd want next year to be? Symbolic among the Chinese.

    1. Yes, round means togetherness and we did make some round ones too! Why not have a little fun since the kiddos love it ;)
