Dumpling Festival!(not yet..)

hihihi..mama made dumplings earlier this year as she will be buzy next few weeks.So, i'm there to help her when she needs me!I will always be there for her,hehe, sounds like drama.
Anyways, there is alot of preperation work and she definitely cannot cope all by herself. We started cooking the meat cut them, chopped the garlic, onions etc..wow, we work like crazy.
The next day, early in the morning and mama was up and ready to start. She make sure everything is hygienic. To the extent that she boils the coconut leaves and brush them clean. Then, we proceeded fry the glutinous rice,adding garlic and oil to make it fragrant.(i'm eating the dumpling right now!)not bad leh...
Next is to fry the filling. mama use pork lard oil so as to make it more fragrant. We added onions to fry till aromatic,then add mushrooms,chicken, chestnut,winter melon, pepper, fried coriander powder, soya sauce, salt..And fry and fry till evenly tossed and cooked..
hmm..smells so good already! Then it was time to wrap! Mama uses the traditional way to cook which is to use te charcoal as fuel and the joss stick as the timer,hehe..so cute..
wrapping was not easy, if you are not careful, the dumpling may open up anytime when boiling!oops..Take a look at the following to learn more about wrapping!

When we were buzy with our wrapping, gugu went to Alexandra Village Food Centre to buy the famous crystal dumplings..She bought 15 salty ones(with turnip,shrimps.),5 tausa ones,and 5 yam ones(max). She also went to a shop selling black sesame kueh!my favourite of my favourite food! All these cost her a lot as they are all not cheap, she know i like so purposely went down to buy!i'm so so touched!..Had one of each for supper..I love whatever she buys!
