Glutinous or "sweet rice" has a texture unlike other rices. When ground into a flour and mixed with water, it makes an elastic dough that can be used to wrap other foods for frying, poaching, or steaming. Here it surrounds a nugget of sweetened peanut butter and the dumplings are served in a peanut based sauce. Recipe is from a Martin Yan cookbook. Sounds delicious, doesn't it?
