Instructions

  1. Make dough filling

    • Blend the almonds, icing sugar and caster sugar in a food processor, until it looks like damp sand. 
    • Add the butter and blend once more, just until the mixture comes together. 
    • Spoon out into a bowl and place in the fridge to harden.


  2. Make ginger syrup

    • Make the soup by boiling the ginger, rock sugar and pandan with 5 cups of water together. 
    • Reduce to a simmer and leave to cook for 20-30 minutes.


  3. Make dough

    • Mix the glutinous rice flour and water together, and knead till a bouncy dough forms. 
    • Pluck off a knob of the dough and flatten with your hands, then scoop a little filing and place in the centre. Bring the edges up and seal, then roll into a nice round ball. 
    • Repeat until the dough is finished.


  4. Boil tang yuan

    • Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then drop the dumplings in. They are cooked 30 seconds after floating to the surface.
