Chinese Rice Dumplings, $2.95 each
These dumplings are traditionally wrapped with bamboo leaves which give them a very unique fragrance and flavours. Now, some people also use other leaves like lotus leaves. The main ingredient is the glutinous rice and the side ingredients normally differ depending on the regions. The side ingredients can be pork,chestnuts, shrimps, chinese sausage, beans, eggs, peanuts and etc. There are several types of those dumplings too ~~ e.g pork dumplings, Nyonya dumplings and a few other types that I'm not very sure of their names.
When I bought them, the description on the filling inside it is roughly like this: Pork, Peanuts, Yellow beans and Something something else that I dun remember now. Doesn't it sounds so appealing?
When I open them up, inside only has some yellow beans, a few peanuts and A SLICE OF FAT. Where is my pork?? I actually don't mind that much if they do not hav the mentioned side ingredients in it, if the dumplings itself is nice. However, the glutinous rice is pretty flavourless. NOT NICE at all. Probably is from different supplier because I've tried it b4 from another Asian grocery in the city which the dumplings tasted not bad. Hmm...
Despite of the dissapointment, I have fulfilled my cravings =D *sounds like a pregnant woman eh? LOL*
San always have lots of cravings
