Today, 30th May 2017 is the Dragon Boat festival. You can find the details of this event at wikipedia. During this Chinese event, most Chinese families would wrap and boil triangle dumplings made from glutinous rice, mixed with chinese black mushrooms, pork belly, chinese chestnuts, dried shrimps or red beans. It was rumored that these dumplings were made in order to prevent the fishes from eating up the body of the Chinese poet who had committed suicide in the sea. Honestly speaking, I have no idea how to make Chinese Dumplings which are locally known as "Bak Chang or Zhong Zi". However, I do know how to eat them!!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Boat_Festival

@amadeo yes they are superlicious, very filling but it is best not to eat dumplings daily. Indigestion. Have you had it?

The dumplings sound very tasty! Do you buy them in the shops or go to the restaurant to eat them?

Happy dragon boat festival to you! The dumpling in your picture looks good! My mom always makes dumplings since we were young, and I just learned how to make from her two years ago. But I don't think I can make it without her help or guidance yet. Perhaps I am going to make it myself next year. Kids always have fun when making the dumplings!
