These are so ridiculously easy to make it’s almost a shame to buy them.
I’ve wanted to make tang yuan ever since I saw a recipe for it in a Chinese cookbook like two years ago. I was always worried that it was a lot of work though, or required some skill I don’t have the way that most Asian food does. Thankfully these tasty treats don’t require any special tools or knowledge. The only thing that might be difficult to get your hands on is the glutinous rice flour, if you don’t live by an Asian market.

    Step 2

    Break your dough into balls, roll out with lightly floured hands and add your filling. You want your dough to be thinner in the middle and thicker at the edges. As you can see my dough is still too dry and this was way too much filling, but I got it right after this.

    Pour your coconut milk, sugar and water into a pan, stirring occasionally. Bring to a boil and drop in your dumplings. Cook until the dumplings begin to float and serve in a bowl with plenty of the sweet broth.
