“This Chinese rice dish calls for the use of a Lotus leaf. I can't find any either, I use a banana leaf, well part of one anyway. We have banana plants in the garden. The leaves are very large and get damaged easily so I just go and cut a piece off. Easy to cook this recipe was given to me years ago and has become a staple in our menus.”
