Healthy Dim Sum for you and me! How about some Glutinous Rice in "Lotus Leaf" (糯米鸡 Nuo Mi Ji in Mandarin; also named Loh Mai Kai) using Black Glutinous Rice?
Healthy Alternative: Use black glutinous rice instead of the normal cream-colored glutinous rice. For the same calories, black glutinous rice is certainly more nutrient-dense. Where to buy: Organic Black Glutinous Rice (Organic Black Sweet Sticky Rice) - 1 Lb
Pre-fry the seasoned chicken and mushrooms with minced garlic, then steam with pre-cooked black glutinous rice in the steamer.
