ZONG ZI / DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL

To celebrate the traditonal Chinese dumpling (Zong Zi) festival, we had dinner at brother, Alfred's house in a small way this evening. My mum cooked most of the dishes by herself since this morning. Zong Zi can be found everyday in almost every food stalls around the Chinese populated areas in the city so we do not have to wait till the festive season to taste the Zong Zi unlike Mooncake Fastival where mooncakes are being sold one month leading to the festival.

I like to eat Zong Zi same goes to my mum and my two little girls. As they are made of glutinous rice which is believed to be difficult to digest by young children, I usually limit the intake of one Zong Zi only for Crystal in a day. It is also said to be unhealthy for patients with high blood pressure due to its high contained of fats. So eat in moderation.
If you want to know the story behind Zong Zi festival and its recipe on how to make Zong Zi, visit here. You will love it!
