Celebrating Dragon Boat Festival with home made rice dumplings

The bunny's household had a busy day today, helping my Grandma to make rice dumplings. It's a yearly event in the family to celebrate 端午节 or the Dragon Boat Festival. Grandma's rice dumplings are chock full of ingredients and much tastier than most commercial ones in my opinion.

Here are some pictures that I took with my new Canon EOS M today (thanks to the bf for the present!)...

The preparations...




Wrapping and cooking...




And the fruit of the labor...



It must be a good day to be making rice dumplings today - my FB wall today is full of friends making their own ba zhang at home. 

On a separate note, I'm looking for good recipes for Nyonya rice dumplings. Do share if you have any!
