The Aspiring Bakers' theme this month was Dim Sum Affairs and you can see a lot of interesting  creations on the internet. I was drooling over all those Dim sums and I just can't help but to say that there are so many wonderful and creative  chefs out there.
So over the weekend, I was prompted to make what must be the easiest Dim Sum  and truly you just cannot go wrong with it- Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken (Loh Mai Kai).

To make things a  bit easier, I  used the Char Siew sauce which was given along with the purchase of Char Siew to mix the rice which has been soaked overnight.   I love this char siew sauce.   The rice were  then steamed.

I purposely bought these stainless steel bowls which costs RM10.00 for 3. But as there were too much rice, I had to use the rice bowls as well.
Place the marinated meat filling- piece of char siew, mushroom, Chinese sausage and chicken at bottom of bowl.  As I had some left roasted pork, I added them to the filling.  

 Cover with the rice, pressing down tight.
Steam over high heat for around 15-20 minutes.

This is one of  my favourite dimsum.
