The "Zong Zi' or the much-celebrated Dragon Boat Festival comes early to me as I was one of the few lucky guests invited to taste their specially crafted three signature rice dumpling at LI YEN, their Chinese restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur.

The festive Chinese dumplings play a significant part in my life. A nostalgic food, I grew up eating my late mom's homemade 'Zong' she specially made for me with selected few of my favourite ingredients of lean pork, salted egg yolk, fried dry shrimps, chestnuts and dhal (yellow split peas). 

After my mom passed on, I was lucky to have my mother-in-law who makes mine special too while my aunt will craft some delicious sambal belacan dumplings for my family and me. So every year in the month of May and June while savouring these Chinese dumplings, they always bring back lovely memories of my beloved mother, mum-in-law and my aunt, Fei Po Po! 😢😢😢

Following a centuries-old recipe, these parcels of indulgent and hearty glutinous rice are filled with a variety of ingredients, wrapped in bamboo and lotus leaves and steamed till fragrant and succulent.
