Ginkgo & Longan Mini Sweet Rice Dumpling

Oh wow, time just flies! I still remember the last rice dumpling I published on last year around this time. If I'm not mistaken there's no one reading my post! =( But I'm so glad I finally met so many foodie friends from all around the world by this time of the year. I have no doubt how fortunate I am to have all of you around. I enjoy every moment of it. And here's something nice & sweet to go along with our yearly Dumpling Festival celebration, which is fall on the coming 16th of June.
Here's the recipe.
Ingredients :
230gm glutinous rice flour
75gm rice flour
15ml corn oil

300ml water
125gm sugar
5 pandan leaves/ 1 tspn pandan extract

70gm fresh ginkgo nuts (I used 1 packet)
25gm dried longan

* extra cooking oil for hand coating.

Method :

- combine ingredients (A) in a mixing bowl untill oil totally combined.
- combine ingredients (B) in a saucepan and boil till sugar dissolved.
- slowly stir in ingredients (B) into (A) untill form a sticky soft dough.
- then add in ingredients (C) and mix untill combined.

- now, fold a piece of bamboo leaf into a cone shape.
- add a ball of dough and shape into a triangle, then secure with a string
- steam the prepared dumplings over rapid boiling water for 15 mins.
- then leave cool and serve with palm sugar syrup.

Ingredients for Palm Sugar Syrup :
100gm palm sugar
2 tbsp water
50gm thick coconut milk

( combine all ingredients in a saucepan and boil untill thicken.)

I only used three quarter for the longan & ginkgo nuts flavour. The other one quarter I used red bean paste for fillings. Pretty nice though! I still think the longan flavour dumpling quite unique. My daughter took a few of that and ME...haha.... I ate four straight! haha.... Hey, don't laugh! Hopefully, I don't look like BIG MAMA by the end of the year.


  1. I plan to make hakka dough dumplings this year too!!!!
    But with savoury fillings.

  2. you do the delivering? :-) They look so yummy.

  3. hey something new wor and less time consuming..i think i will try a packet of gingko nuts in the fridge

    The rice flour is plain rice flour, right? not the glutinous one right?

  4. Wendy : Thanks for the comment left on my other posting. My FIL used to make Hakka dumplings every year but he can't do it anymore. YOu know, what situation he is in now! Though, I hope to try it out myself. My family loves it very much. Only very litle ingredients are used. Mainly red beans, glutinous rice & meat.

    Angie : Miss this or not?

    SKucing : You need both rice flour & also glutinous rice flour! Make sure you don't put in the wrong flour lol! haha... Good luck, dear!

    Thanks so much for spending your time here today and hope you're having a fabulous day!

    Cheers, Kristy

  5. Gosh, Kristy, you did it again. Using both flours instead of the glutinous rice itself. Looks so yummy, salivating already. I like glutinous rice but find it hard to digest. I like the other kuih, something like that, round with 'mei tau' and a bit of 'har mai' filling, on a piece of banana leaf. Maybe will try to make it one day, ha, one day. No worries, now you have so many followers reading your posts.

  6. How one year changes! These look so neat - never actually knew how these are made...very cool.

  7. this is new to me but it looks very delicious...thanks for sharing dear..

  8. Dumplings with syrup sound amazing! I haven't seen them before!!

  9. Oh how I love dumplings. Oh how I ant yours. The syrup really inites.

  10. i actually want to try and make rice dumplings. difficult though!

  11. This looks great. I've only had savory rice dumplings, but I can't wait to try your version.

  12. Cheah : Thank you! It taste pretty chewy and spongy at the same time. Just like those 'kan sui zhong'! I adore the texture very much. Planning to make some more next week. The kuih you mentioned about is 'cha guo'! I like that too. But as you said so quite hard to digest.

    Belinda : You can check out the making from my last year posting (just click on it)!

    Divya : You're welcome! Hope you'll enjoy it too.

    TLSpoon :'re right! I'm a big fan of those syrup!

    Claudia : Haha... don't have to ant on my dumplings! Just get some from the nearby Chinatown!

    Penny : I'm going to make that next week. I hate the boiling section! As this is much easier, just steam for 15mins will do. Fast & yummy.

    Kait : Thanks! Glad that you like it too. Hope you'll enjoy the recipe & have fun!

    Thanks for stopping by everyone! Hope you're all having a great time today.

    Blessings, Kristy
