Glutinous Rice with Chicken // Lor Mai Gai // 糯米鸡

Lor Mai Gai is a traditional Cantonese dish, usually eaten as dim sum which is also known as snack. I guess authentic Lor Mai Gai is usually wrapped with lotus leaf but in Singapore, we usually eat it straight out from the plate. In English, this dish is literally known as Glutinous Rice with Chicken or Steamed Sticky Rice with Chicken. The base for Lo mai gai is usually glutinous rice, chicken, Chinese mushrooms, Chinese sausage, scallions and at times even dried shrimp or salted egg. What you add to your Lo Mai Gai is entirely up to you. Isn’t that the beauty of homecooking?
