Traditional Steam Glutinous Rice / Luo Mi Fan
Besides the Teochew steam glutinous rice, this dark steam glutinous rice is a traditional dish that is one of my favourite. Dark and light soya sauce are added to give the rice colour. And more ingredients are added. Every dialect have their own version of Luo Mi Fan. This is my own version.
