Yuanxiao, or tangyuan (glutinous rice ball) is a traditional Chinese festival item. Chinese custom calls for people to have some yuanxiao on the Lantern Festival (15th of the first lunar month) to celebrate the family reunion and wish for good luck.
The outside of the yuanxiao is made of glutinous rice flour and the inside can be either sweet or salty, savory meat or vegetable.
