Making Chai Kuih Or Steamed Vegetable Dumplings.

Chai Kuih or steamed vegetable dumpling is one of my favourite kuih or snack. I used to buy these dumplings from one lady who sells kuih at the recreational park where we go for our morning walk. She only sells chai kuih or vegetable dumplings on Fridays, other days she will be selling curry puffs, etc. So far, her vegetable dumplings is one of the best I have tasted and the dumplings are packed with yam bean or chives filling.
I started making chai kuih and the first few tries were up to my expectation. Finally, I managed to get the right texture for the skin and it was worth all the effort and patience.
Once steamed, brush some garlic oil on the dumplings.
 A friend of mine loves these dumplings too. So one morning I made some for her, since I will be visiting her that morning.
 These were my friend's lunch. The dumplings were still warm when I reached her place. Dropped a few dollops of chilies sauce on the dumplings.
 Steamed tapioca with melted palm sugar is also my friend's and my favourite snack. Bought some from the roadside stall, steamed the tapioca and took both the steamed dumplings and tapioca to my friend. So satisfying to see her enjoying these snacks. All my effort not wasted. Lol!
