Loh Mai Gai 【糯米鸡】

This steamed sticky rice is my absolute favourite in Dim Sum place back in Malaysia. It is also a family favorite with mom making it very often at home. 

Since I can't be possibly finding the same dish at the Dim Sum place in the USA, I have to get the recipe from mom and make it at home!
