A Chinese classic. Zong Zi is glutinous rice wrapped in layers of bamboo leaves that's boiled until the rice is cooked and the fragrant and subtle flavour of the bamboo leaves seeps into the rice.
It comes with various fillings, this one has the mung bean and marinated pork belly.
Perfect for any time of the day along side with some sambal or chilli oil.
Freezable and perfect for gifting (lunar new year is coming soon *wink wink* )
To heat up:
Make sure Zong zi is in chill temperature:
1. Steam for 15-20 minutes
2. Cut into slices, add some oil into hot pan and fry them.
3. You can probably microwave it although we won't recommend it...
So just in case you are wondering why these are seasonal, well these are actually prepared by Rob's parents whom are extremely good at wrapping the zong (they have been wrapping for over 30++ years). Rob's dad is currently staying at home due to the lockdown. We are still following covid-19 rules and guidelines, so although we can't visit them but they are still be able to drop the zongs to us for the packing.
