Red Bean Sticky Rice Dumpling

To go with the Chicken and Ginger and Corn, I decided to try this glutinous or sticky rice product from the local Chinese supermarket. There are various versions of this, this one has red beans in it, there are others with chicken, ones with mushrooms, and ones with pork. They are wrapped in lotus leaves, and are generally glutinous rice, water and canola oil with the extra ingredient, in this case red beans. They last six months in the freezer or ten days in the fridge. To heat, all it requires, after defrosting if it was in the freezer, is to boil it in water for 8-10 minutes. Sticky rice is interesting, but a little too sticky for my tastes.
