粽子 Sticky Rice Dumplings With Red Bean Paste Filling

I’ve made zong zi before. This time, I decided to make some with red bean paste filling.

Main ingredients:

big bamboo leaves

sticky rice

red bean paste

kitchen twine

Bamboo leaves should be soaked in water overnight. Cut off the leaf stalk before wrapping. Sticky rice should also be soaked for hours, I usually soak them overnight.

Use bamboo leaves (1 or 2 ) to make a funnel shape at one end. Add into 1 or 2  tbsp rice, then add in red bean paste as many as you want. 🙂 Top with another 1 tbsp rice. Cover it with the rest bamboo leaf and wrap with twine.

Boil them in pressure cooker for 30mins.

Yum! 🙂

I also tried to use sago instead of sticky rice. If you use sago, better not cook them with pressure cooker, cos sago is much easier to cook.

But I like sticky rice more, sticky rice taste more chewy.
