One of the food that will brings back your memory when you taste it is Zongzi (Bak Cang). I grew up in Medan, never appreciating how lucky I am being able to have this. Only when I moved to Australia, I missed this traditional Chinese sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaves. The process, as I remember took ages, as it needs to be boiled 6 hours in a pot filled with boiling water. But this is the guarantee of the taste.
If you are looking for a simple dishes to cook over Christmas or family gathering, look no further.
This is one simple recipes that I have tried multiple times. In simplistic this can be prepared in 30 minutes, and taste really good.
