An unusual dumpling that combines minced chicken, mushrooms, carrots, celery and water chestnuts all wrapped up in a paper-thin egg white omelette.


The delicate dish speaks of a scene in Chapter 27 of the classic Chinese novel “Dream of the Red Chamber” (红楼梦) when the female protagonist Lin Daiyu (林黛玉) laments the frailty of life as she tearfully buries withered flowers.


It was featured in the “Red Chamber Banquet” (狮城红楼宴) during the 2004 Singapore Food Festival, which saw chefs from Singapore and China whipping up dishes inspired by this story written during the Qing dynasty.
