The Delicious Asian Food Fest has ended and though I am a little disappointed that there were only 3 submissions, nevertheless, I must say that the 3 submissions were of high quality and I must thank them for taking part. In fact, the 3 submissions are all some of my favourite chinese snacks and if you see the sample pictures here, you will know why.


Bak Chang


The first to submit was Jo, the author of *~Riceballz~*. She shared her family recipe for Bak Chang (triangular shaped rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves). It is not a recipe for beginners and it can be a labourious task making these but the effort usually pays off when you dig into these lovely dumplings.



The next to submit was Takfenglili of Life is Beautiful; Life is Love. Takfenglili generously shared with me their (yes, Takfenglili is actually Tak Feng and Lili) recipe for Chai Kueh which is Vegetable Rice Noodle. A mixture of vegetable and prawns are wrapped in a rice noodle sheet before steaming to make this delicious looking parcel. Great for afternoon tea, I must say.



Finally, Elaine of A Series of Kitchen Experiments came up with her recipe for oblong looking Har Gows (Shrimp Dumplings) which is a favourite in Dim Sum restaurants. Reading the recipe makes one realise that these dainty treats take lots of effort to make. No wonder they are so delicious!

    Har Gow looks good…
    The rice with lotus leaf is good but sometimes I get very stuff from eating them.
