Bak Chang - A Personal Favourite

Bak chang is one of my personal favourites and is still prepared traditionally in many households in Singapore, as the video above shows.

These are the Hokkien-style rice dumplings which are a substantial snack and full of flavour.  This article explains some of the cultural context for the Quek family in Singapore.

Although traditionally eaten during the Dragon Boat festival on the 5th day of the 5th month, it is now possible to buy these every day of the year, in places such as Tangs department store basement.
