Dragon Boat Festival Rice.


Dragon boat dumplings, pyramidal leaf-wrapped packages filled with glutinous rice, meat, beans, salty eggyolks, and other exciting things. Mrs Lui is a vendor at the Shek Kip Mei Estate market who makes rice dumplings and other sweet and savory snacks.

A couple of weeks before the Dragon Boat Festival during the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, Lui makes over 300 rice dumplings a day. These treats are traditionally eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival. Here, Lui teaches us how to make them.
