Second Aunt's made rice dumplings at least 2 weeks ago, and had given away lots of them. Mom followed suit, and started making hers last week. Besides making her usual bak chang, this year Mom made some sambal ones - it'a just pork and dried prawns and chillies and curry powder and spices ... Lol, I do not know exactly what went in there because I was not involved in the process ...
Steamed and cooked
Sambal Bak Chang
Mom is pretty inconsistent. Sometimes her Bak Chang would be yum, but sometimes not. This time around, Mom took pains to ensure that the filling was well-balanced in flavour. She got Dad to be the taster .... I got roped in as well and so was Second Aunt. After making sure that the filling was ok, then only Mom wrapped the dumplings up. All of us enjoyed the Sambal Bak Chang this time. :))
