The Making of Nyonya Chang (Glutinous Rice Dumpling).



Homemade Nyonya Chang (Glutinous Rice Dumplings).


The making..............................visually step by step.................



Soaked Hemp Strings.
Boiled,washed and wipe-dried the Bamboo leaves.
White glutinous rice-soaked overnight.
Blue colored glutinous rice- mixing it with the juice of the Butterfly pea flower(below).

 Bunga Telang (Butterfly Pea flower)
The fillings- ingredients are lean pork, pork fats,mushroom, tong toong kuah (preserved candied winter melon) garlic, shallots, ketumbar (roasted ground coriander seed), salt, pepper,tau cheong (preserved soybean paste) , light and dark soy sauce, sar keong (cekur rhizomes) 
The cooking process takes about 3 1/2 hours-when it's cooked-hang it up to drain away the excess water and oil-and it is ready to be serve-a lovely hue of white and blue with a fragrant flavor-full of  meaty and crunchy textures with every bite-best in the world !
