  1. Make Peanut Soup

    • Using a dry frying pan/skillet to roast peanuts until golden brown.

  2. To make glutinous rice ball

    • Combine glutinous rice flour and rice flour. Add warm water gradually to flour mix. Mix well and form into a dough ball–it should be like play dough consistency.
    • Take a small dough and shape into a ball. Repeat the earlier step until all dough is shaped into small balls. From this recipe, you will get about 24 to 30 balls.
    • Bring a pot of water up to boil and add in some salt then slowly place the balls into boiling water and wait until they float to the surface.
    • Prepare a bowl with cold icy water on the side. Once the balls are floating, with a slotted spoon or spider, transfer them right away toa bowl of cold water to stop them from cooking more.
