When I went to the supermarket and saw the frozen glutinous rice balls on sale, I knew after asking that it would be the winter solstice in two days.
During the winter solstice, most people eat dumplings in the north, and dumplings in the south. People think that: after the winter solstice, the days are getting longer and the yang is rising. This is the beginning of a solar term cycle and an auspicious day, which should be celebrated.
In Nanjing, there is a small dessert called adzuki bean wine and rice noodles, which is red bean soup, rice noodles and solid Xiaoshuizi (small yuanxiao). Today, I replaced Xiaoshuizi with a commercially available frozen black sesame glutinous rice ball, and the taste became richer. Especially girls should eat it often, it can nourish blood and nourish the face, and make your black hair elegant.
Ingredients (for 3 people): 100g red beans, 120g rice wine, 36 glutinous rice balls, brown sugar
1. Don't put too much water in the red bean soup, because the water will be wide when you cook glutinous rice balls later.
2. If there is a lot of water in the glutinous rice balls, scoop out some of the water before adding rice wine and red bean soup, otherwise the taste will be too weak.
