Ba Chang

After reading Small Kucing's blog sometime ago about ba chang (Hokkien word meaning glutinous rice dumpling with meat), I suddenly feel like eating them so I bought one from the morning market today.

Savoury glutinous rice dumpling - MYR5

After removing the bamboo leaves

The dumpling has been wrapped tightly and cooked for a long time so it was diffficult to separate the glutionous rice from the other ingredients. This savoury dumpling has black eyed beans instead of mung beans. I like to eat both beans but I have not seen a dumpling with both type of beans in it.

There is quite a fair bit of salted egg yolk here. Other ingredients inside are pork meat, chinese mushrooms, and chestnuts.

Can you guess what this is? I have to remove all these carefully with my chopsticks because I don't like to eat these and most of them have kind of melted into the glutinous rice. After eating one dumpling, I was very full as it was quite big and the glutinous rice was very filling.

    1. Since you are good at baking and cooking, I am sure you will learn how to make bak Chang very fast. Can watch YouTube to learn how to wrap them.
