Chinese Tong Tze - Time for Tang Yuen

Sesame Glutinous rice balls

Today is the last Chinese festival of the year - tong tze. Hokkien people always cook tang yuen (glutinous rice balls) on this day because it symbolizes getting together of a family.
These little balls are so tasty I make them all year round and serve them in all kinds of sweet soup like red bean soup, purple glutinous rice porridge, green bean soup, etc.
