Chinese rice dumplings recipe
Simply bring the dumplings with boiling water to a boil, then continue to cook for 5 minutes. Place the pot into the outer container, cover for about 1.5 hours. Then remove the pot from the container and cook over high heat to bring it boil again. Place it back into the container for 1.5 hours. Done.
If your pot is not large enough, cook the dumplings in two batches.
Bamboo leaves are dried in the sun. Their colour should be light yellow or light green. After soaking, the smell is very fragrant.
Beware of those are in bright green colour. They might be treated by some chemicals. Do prepare more bamboo leaves than enough as some of them might break apart while wrapping. If the leaves have been soaked with oil, they won’t break apart easily. If you find any broken along the way of wrapping, don’t panic. Just place another leaf over and wrap with string to prevent any rice from coming out. That’s easy.
Here's a tutorial video I uploaded on youtube. You might want to challenge yourself with another pentagonal version.
