Mini rice dumplings 小米粽

Any foods made with glutinous rice always one of my favourite's choice. This mini rice dumpling wrapped with wanton skin idea was inspired from my recent hiking trip at Taiwan. Breakfast that served at Taichung hotel was one of the best during our stay, one of them was this steamed mini rice dumpling.
