The making of Dumpling~

5th of May in Chinese Calender is known as Dragon Boat Festival. My mom and i made some dumpling for ourself and relatives~

Hmm, one thing, i would like to say is... Home made dumpling is much more nicer than those i bought in pasar malam...and u know la.. our gov has just increased the oil price, and inflation in flying colours~ so... better save $$~ DIY la!
here i ll let u know the actual process of making dumpling~

First of all, u will have to prepare some basic material:

Brown cotyledons, simmer in hot water and get it immersed in water for one night.

You can easily get this glutinous rice from any grocery store, those i bought was 60% glutinous rice mixed with 40% normal rice~

Immersed in water for 30 minutes in order to make it easier to cook~

After that u will have to fried it with appropriate seasoning

There are 5 more ingredients u will need in a dumpling which are dried shrimp, boiled chest nut, pork, seasoned duck egg, and mushroom.
