Another type of shaomai

Since I’ve written a post about the classic Cantonese siumao (shaomai in Mandarin) in the previous post, I thought I’d continue the shaomai streak with another version. I tried this in Hangzhou for the first time but it’s similar to the ones commonly found in Wuhan, where I live now. It’s not as colourful as the Cantonese version and its main stuffing is composed of glutinous rice instead of pork. I do quite enjoy it often as a breakfast item nowadays 😉
