Too Early for Bak Chang?

 Yesterday Mamarazzi posted these photos in Facebook and made some friends checked their calender. Nope...it's not Bak Chang(Dumpling) Festival yet.

She made coz she felt like having it coz she said buy from outside is very expensive and doesn't have the ingredients she wanted.

Made two types of beans coz Papa likes the green beans while Mamarazzi likes the other one

This round syok lo...the ingredient cukup kaw...she added big big dried scallop that we bought from KK and added some dried oyster.

Salted eggs was super cheap at 99 SPeedmart. 3 for RM2.10 only.


 Got some leftover Pacific clams. She had always wanted to add into the Bak Chang but always can't find when she wants it. This round happy coz got some.


 The rest are the usual ingredient, pork, crest nut, dried shrimp and mushrooms. The dried mushroom also bought from 99 Speedmart. RM5.90 a packet. Cheap leh as they are quite thick.

 
Glutinous rice ready for wrapping.

 Managed to make 20 Bak Chang  from 1 1/5 kg of glutinous rice.

 Opps....4 "burst"  coz "sumbat"(stuffed) too much pulut(glutinous rice) in them.



 one of the "burst" dumpling which I walloped with Mamarazzi

Lucky me...can "makan suap"(Spoon fed. Alternative meaning is bribe in Malay)...I did homework and Mamarazzi "suap" me eat the Bak Chang. Yumm.....

    1. once you know how to wrap then it's easy. here is the video one wrapping http://www.deliciousasianfood.com/2008/06/10/the-bak-chang-wrapping-process/ The ingredients is up to you on what you wanna put in.

      Mamarazi's recipe is agak agak type :

      -all the ingredients wash and soak overnight. The beans i used hot water coz scare cold water will make it grow.

      -meat marinate overnight. I used some 5 spice powder, oyster sauce, sugar, salt and dark soya sauce to marinate

      - next day clean the brown skin from the buah berangan

      - then fry the ingredients(one type by one type) with a bit of oil and salt to get rid of "water" taste.

      - fry the meat till half cooked.

      - last fry the pulut . put oil salt(to taste), dark soya sauce, oyster sauce and 5 spice powder.

      then can start wrap the Bak Chang

      after wrapping boil them in large pot of water. Water must cover all the bak chang. add 1 spoon of salt into the water.

      depending on size...boil in medium fire agak agak 2-3 hours.

      Hopefully I have not miss out any steps la. LOL....me blur sotong always
