This are super lazy way to get comfort, I don’t know about things that comfort you, but for me cinnamon and ginger are among few things that give me instant comfort. I still can not move on from the winter.
It is entering blooming of spring, but enjoying small of this comfort at the end of the days, when everything seem to be hard and a lot of things that seem not finish, this dessert offering warm invisible blanket.
To make this also dead easy, the only thing is, I used ready to eat rice ball that available on frozen zone in Asian store. In Indonesia there are almost similar dessert to this, enjoy when the weather turn cold and rainy a lot. It is called “Wedang ronde”, I adapt from that dessert, taking the inspiration from it, and because I was too lazy to make the rice ball dumpling myself, I used ready to eat one, hehehe.
Here are my adaptation
