A Bite of China – Anhui Lujiang Rice Dumplings



Lujiang County, Anhui Province, China has been rich in rice since ancient times, and people also like to eat rice products. Among the folk, the custom of making skin with processed rice flour, wrapping pork and some seasonal vegetables, and deep-frying it for breakfast has gradually emerged. Because the shape of this fried product is curved, the common people often call it the big curved dumpling. According to legend, when the Eight-Power Allied Forces captured Beijing, and when Lafayette was “hunting in the west”, when he was hungry on the road, fortunately, He Chengao, a native of Huangtun in Lujiang and the chief soldier of Xuanhua Town, offered his hometown Dawan dumplings to rescue him, and he became famous all over the world.
