Dumpling Festival 2013

Time really flies.  Last year this time, my family was mourning the passing of our loved one [my dear Papa] and according to Chinese beliefs and traditions, the immediate family members are not supposed to wrap dumplings or even to prepare glutinous rice balls/tang yuan [for whatever reasons, I don't know].  But then, I was lucky to have some very thoughtful friends who gave us a variety of savoury dumplings [bak chang] [see link].
The following rice dumplings were made earlier but delayed posting the recipe till now.
  • Green Beans Chang [Savoury Sweet Rice Dumplings] - recipe here
  • Taiwanese Lou Rou Chung [Braised Meat Rice Dumplings] - recipe here
This year, the 'pantang' period is over and I will be making several types of rice dumplings for my family, extended family and also to share with some of my friends who aren't making them.  These rice dumplings will be made  over several days before the Chang Festival [see link for the story about (粽子 - 端午节)].  
  • Red Yeast Meat Chung [Ang Chow Meat Rice Dumplings] - [see recipe here]
  • Tai Shan Style Chung [Tai Shan Savoury Rice Dumplings] 
This time around, I will not be making the Alkaline Glutinous Rice 'Kan Sui Chang since I have so much of the above.
