Rainbow Tang Yuan (彩红汤圆)

With so much of red bean paste left, I decided to make these Rainbow Tang Yuan (彩红汤圆). I just needed to buy a packet of glutinous rice flour and added all my favorite coloring to it. So happy to see everyone eating it with a cheery smile on their faces.  


115g glutinous rice flour 
100ml water
Red bean paste

Ginger Syrup
3 cups of water
2 slices of ginger
Rock sugar to taste


1. Mix the glutinous rice flour with water in a bowl until it forms a smooth paste and no longer sticks to your hand. 
2. Divide dough into 3 portions and mix in colorings as desired. 
3. Roll dough and red bean paste into small balls
4. Flatten a dough ball using your palm and place a red bean ball in the center. Fold the edges to seal tight and gently roll the dough using your palm. Dust with some flour if it sticks to your hand and place dough on a piece of parchment paper.
5. Prepare ginger syrup by boiling water. Add the ginger into the water and boil for 10-15 mins. Add rock sugar (to taste) and boil for another 5 mins. Lower heat to simmer.
6. Heat up another pot of water and bring it to boil. Drop the dough into the boiling water. As soon as they float to the top, transfer them out and into the ginger syrup. Turn off the heat and ready to serve.
