On the 18th of February 2015, most of the Chinese Students in UL got together in Chung’s Cuisine (Chinese Restaurant) to celebrate Chinese New Year with the staff at UL.
Dumplings are one of the major foods eaten during the Chinese New Year and today I will introduce you to this traditional Chinese food.
Chinese people invented dumplings about 1,800 years ago. It is a traditional food loved by Chinese people.
Filling for Dumplings
Common dumpling meat fillings include pork, mutton, beef, chicken, fish and shrimp which are usually mixed with chopped vegetables. Popular vegetable fillings include cabbage, scallion, leek and garlic chives. Dumplings are eaten with a soy sauce-based dipping sauce that may include vinegar, garlic, ginger, rice wine, hot sauce and sesame oil.
You should try to make dumplings some time! 🙂
