Dim Sum Loh Mai Gai/Steamed Sticky Rice With Mushroom and Chicken

This is one of our favourite must order from any dim sum restaurants.  But this time I had fun making them at home. Thanks to many youtubers sharing their own secret recipes that I am able to make them for our breakfast and teasnacks.  The sharing of recipes has also enabled me to make it quick and simple.  By first pre cooking the sticky rice and the fillings has made this dim sum delicacy so easy to make. Assembling them in small rice bowls then steamed them for the last 15 to 20 mins has the sticky rice perfectly cooked .  I think I have finally mastered the skill in cooking sticky rice. I used Spice N Pans You tuber' recipe.  A keeper for sure.

the fillings and sticky rice has to be 3/4 pre cooked first

assembled them in rice bowls

 this has made it easier and shorten the
steaming time
