My mother makes tasty nutritious Chinese dessert drinks or tong sui 糖水 such as ginkgo barley drink 白果薏米, red bean drink 紅豆沙, black glutinous rice drink 黑糯米糖水 and tang yuen 湯圓. We enjoy them during weekends especially with the notoriously named Yu Tiao 油條 aka Deep Fried Devils 油炸鬼! Some of these Chinese food are favorite festive desserts usually served during Chinese New Year, Mid Autumn Festival, Winter Solstice etc.

My mother-in-law makes just as good Chinese dessert drinks too. Her red bean drink 紅豆沙 and sweet potato drink 番薯糖水 are the best in the world! One bowl is never enough. I learned to make these Chinese desserts drinks too and they are really quite simple. Just watch the sugar and the fire.

Most Asian desserts cakes 糕點 are either steamed or fried, particularly Chinese dessert recipes generally require steaming which is good health-wise. Have you ever tasted steamed cakes? They are delightfully spongy and not oily and best eaten hot! As for fried Chinese desserts, you must try the Chinese Crullers 油炸鬼 in particular - they are crispy and taste great with porridge or black coffee. There are other varieties of crullers which you see at the morning market stalls. These stalls are usually crowd pullers.

Mooncakes 月餅 are Chinese delicacies savored once a year during the Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋節 which is celebrated annually on the 15th of the 8th Lunar month of the Chinese calendar. Mooncake recipes are oriental recipes which require baking. The basic mooncakes are of lotus paste 蓮蓉 or red bean paste 豆沙 filling. Another favorite is the chilled (ping pei) 冰皮 type. The skin is either snowy white or jade green 翡翠 and has to be kept in the fridge or else it will turn moldy.
