Sweet Glutinous Noodle Soup

Are you looking for noodles here??? Sorry, these are no wheat flour noodles but glutinous flour noodle. Why I'm calling them noodles? There was a time, I saw an old lady making noodles in this way. I'm not sure if it is her traditional way of making the noodles or it's her own creation. I was very young then. Never ask!

So, instead of making the savory noodle, I've made the sweet ones. This is actually a recipe which is similar to 'tang yuen'. Just wanted to try something different today. Something fancy! And here's what I did.

Ingredient for boysenberry dough :
1 cup glutinous rice flour
2 tbsp boysenberry puree
70ml lukewarm water
(combine all ingredients and mix to form a soft dough)

Ingredients for black sesame dough :
1 cup glutinous rice flour
2 tbsp black sesame powder
90ml lukewarm water
(combine all ingredients and mix to form a soft dough)

*Divide dough into four(4) portion. Roll each into oblong shape and then slicing into small bite size.

Ingredients for Sweet Soup :
2L water
3 pandan leaves (screwpine leaf), rinsed
200gm sugar cane rock sugar
handful of dried longan

Method :
(1) combine all ingredients in a big pot and boil them over medium heat untill dried longan became soft.
(2) next place in all the well shaped dough and let it boil over high heat.
(3) off the heat immediately, once all the glutious dough floating on the surface.
(4) do not cover the lid, let it cool slowly.

You know what! The texture of this shape is actually really nice...really smooth...chewy and am loving the sesame ones. Really yummy! I'm going to make this on the coming New Year eve but in round shape, of coz. Round in Chinese meaning perfect, full and all well. Besides of these two flavour, probably will add in  more.... Hope you guys will have fun too! Enjoy.
I'm sending this to Suresh & Shaz @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday.
