Tangyuan (Glutinous Rice Balls) is traditionally eaten during Yuanxiao or the Lantern Festival in China. It is a round shape dessert made from glutinous rice flour mixed with a small amount of water and then cooked and served in boiling water. As the round shape of the balls and the bowls where they are served, Tangyuan symbolizes the family togetherness. Therefore, it can be also served as a dessert on Chinese wedding day, Winter Solstice Festival (Chinese: 冬至; pinyin: Dongzhi) and any festive occasion for family re-union.
Tangyuan can be either small or large, and filled with various kinds of fillings. Following are 4 types of Tangyuan that can nourish your beauty and health.
