The Chinese dish, nuòmi fàn (糯米饭), is steamed glutinous rice usually cooked
with Chinese sausage, chopped Chinese mushrooms, chopped barbecue pork
and optionally dried shrimp or scallop.
Glutinous rice is also often ground to make glutinous rice flour. This flour is then made into “niangao” and sweet filled dumplings “tangyuan”, both of which are commonly eaten at Chinese New Year. It also sometimes used as a thickener and for baking.
Dried shrimp are shrimp that have been sun dried and shrunk to a thumbnail size.
They are used in many Asian cuisines, imparting a unique umami taste.
In Chinese, it is called xiānggū (香菇, literally "fragrant mushroom").
