Three Types Of Dumplings

DUMPLINGS DAY.... 

I love dumplings, from young till now, however, as I age, I cannot eat as much as I used to during the yesteryears when I was young.  LOL...  Those days I could eat 2-3 without feeling any bloating in the stomach but now if I eat like this, I think I won't be able to eat anything else for the day.  One big dumpling can last me throughout the day so I try to refrain eating much cos I want to save some space for other food!  

Today during lunch time, my friend bought 3 types of dumplings for me to try.  After steaming them hot, we shared them, I try to minimise my portion but eventually, I ended up eating the most.  If I want to have dinner, I better do my 30 minutes miracle walk... I have been following the walk on youtube ever since the lockdown period, believe me, it is really good for seniors... like me!  Initially, I tried doing 20 minutes, then slowly, increasing it to 30 minutes and 40 the most.  Feels so good after the "walks" at home, really have to keep fit after all the eating and sitting during these three months plus.

Oh, back to the dumplings... here they are....

Three types... on the right is Indonesian Bah Chang....
The darker colour is the normal local one...
and two yellow ones is called the Alkaline dumplings
also known as Kee Chang in Hokkien...
The difference between the local and Indonesian dumpling is the rice...
the Indonesian dumpling consisted of mashed the sticky rice and the beans together,
the ingredients inside is almost the same as the local ones except this one has two cilipadi inside..
So it is sort of spicy.... 
Something different... 
Anyway, I prefer the sweet ones... Kee Chang!

  2. My favourite is nyonya chang. Kee chang, my late mum liked, she used to dip in sugar and eat. Would buy nice ones for her from Kuching. I do not have a problem with 2, never had 3 or more at one go. My post on TWO types coming soon in my blog.
