Easy Level:

A commonly known dim sum item, Lor Mai Gai is known by many as a well loved comfort food that is soft, tasty, and drool worthy.
Using the Miele Steam Oven, steaming glutinous rice was made much easier for us, and in our recipe we wrapped the rice and filling in lotus leaves, providing it a nice fragrance when steamed properly. The end result that you’ll have is a soft and fragrant rice that’s a perfect match for the well-seasoned chicken, lap cheong and dried shrimp filling.
Perfect to be eaten with hot Chinese tea, to wash down the goodness that you’ll be cooking!
