Time for rice dumplings

Its traddition, tho I dont really know why, there is a time for making and eating rice dumplings. I have always enjoyed eating my rice dumplings and could eat 2 or 3 large ones for a meal.

My favorite is still the tradditional “salty” rice dumpling wrap with leaves and boiled. Its too much work to make those and .. erh, yes my skill level at wrapping them leaves are not there.. So, to save some effort, I am making them the “siew mai” style.

If you think that only Din Tai Fung serves rice dumpling in “siew mai” style, you are wrong. Way before them, I had already gotten the recipe from somewhere online. I 1st made them in 1999? Or somewhere around that time. It was not as good as a real rice dumpling.. but it has it place in my list of regular food. For this batch, I used another recipe that I got online… but I didnt like it as much.. Was too dry and too much seasoning. But it was easy to make and presented well for guest. Well, I just have to get the seasoning right next time..
