Nonya Dumplings

When I told my hubby that I am making Kee Zhang myself this year. He gave me a challenge to add in this yummy Nonya dumpling in my to do list too! I remembered I used to help my Mum to cut the candid winter melon into small pcs while my sister cut the onions with tears. Haha! Sweet Memories. Back to topics, since my man had set me a target, I got to fulfill his wish. I browsed through blog & Youtube and come out with this yummy combination. Do give it a try if you love NONYA dumplings like my family. My kids, hubby and even my Mum gave me a thumb up!
