Mummy's Little Kitchen Helper

It is the Winter Solstice festival today. Although we don't celebrate this festival, mummy and I made some "tang yuan" (glutinous rice balls) because mummy has not eaten this in a long time. The tang yuan that we made today is almost organic. Except for the ordinary glutinous rice flour used, the rest of the ingredients are all organic... from the peanuts, sugar, pandan leaves to the colouring (organic red dragonfruit juice).

Before making the tang yuan, mummy first made some peanut butter. After she had pan-roasted the peanut kernels, I helped her to remove the peanut skin.

100% homemade organic creamy peanut butter

Note: Peanut butter is very easy to make... just blend the pan-roasted peanuts into a paste (add a dash of sugar and salt for taste) 

Next, she boiled some pandan leaves with sugar

Then came the most fun part! This was also easy to make... just add water into the flour and mix well. Mummy added red dragonfruit juice to make the pink dough

Roll, roll, roll the balls... I rolled all the pink balls (plain ones) and told mummy "this is like play dough but dirtier" haha!

Mummy rolled the white ones with peanut butter fillings

Done! All the pink ones were done by me :) 

Tang yuan with pandan syrup

Yum yum... I like!

We have never made this before. Considering this our very first attempt, the outcome was not bad :)
