【Nyonya Cuisine】Nyonya Chang / Nyonya Bamboo-Leaf Rice Dumplings 娘惹粽

Filed under: Cooking Videos — SeaDragon @ 12:00 am

The Dragon Boat Festival is just around the corner, falling on the 25th of June, 2020, this year. Dragon Boat Festival or Duanwu Jie (端午節), is celebrated on the 5th day of the fifth month on the Lunar calendar every year. Eating the sticky rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves (Zongzi 粽子 in Mandarin, Chang 粽 in Hokkien dialet) is the traditional practice on this day. So I thought I would gather together some cooking videos I found on the net here for references. I will start with the Nyonya version as I am also thinking of doing a series of Nyonya cuisine posts in the future. Nyonya rice dumplings are a variation of the traditional Chinese rice dumplings originated by the Nyonyas (descendants of Chinese and Malay intermarriages) in Malaysia and Singapore.

【廚娘香Q秀】Kuih Lapis Beras Bunga Telang / Kow Teng Kueh 蝶豆九層糕

Saw this video recently, thought it is a good idea to share it here, especially for beginners on how to steam this very common kueh, as it only uses the blue butterfly pea flowers (which you may substitute with natural food colour as the flower is difficult to obtain outside Southeast Asia) which is easier to manage rather than doing the traditional multiple-colour layers.

As for the eagerly anticipated SBS’s Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong, it begins Thursday, February 23, on SBS ONE.
