Ingredients for Bak Chang

Duan Wu Festival falls on 23 June this year.  This is when we enjoy Bak Chang, i.e. dumpling made with glutinuous rice, with  filling comprised of belly pork, beans, mushroom, dried prawns, chestnut and salted egg yolk.  The dumplings are usually wrapped with bamboo leaves. Sometime lotus leaf is used too.  This restaurant is promoting its dumpling and has a display of the ingredients used for making Bak Chang at its entrance.

Other posting on Bak Chang or in Mandarin, Zongzi can be seen HERE.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
