Traditionally served at weddings and other festal occasions, tangyuan (湯圓) are starchy dumplings, lightly flavored and occasionally stuffed with sweet fillings, are made from rice flour and boiled, and sometimes, are fried and sprinkled with shaved peanut. Because tangyuan sounds similar to tuanyuan (團圓), or reunion, these dumplings have come to symbolize peace, unity, and celebration.
