We Tried Chen Xiuhuan’s Abalone Rice Dumpling — Is It Worth Making It Yourself?
The actress shares her recipe.
When it comes to rice dumplings, nothing beats the comforting, traditional taste of mum’s home-made Hokkien bak chang — at least for Chen Xiuhuan. And with Dragon Boat Festival fast approaching on June 25, the avid home cook has been busy learning the art of making dumplings from her 80-year-old mum. As her designated kitchen helper when she was a kid, the actress has watched her wrap bak chang countless times, but she’s never tried making it from scratch herself. “So when the Circuit Breaker ended, I went to my mum’s place to learn the recipe. I even filmed the process so I can refer to it when I make it in future,” she tells 8days.sg.
