Lo mai gai (Chinese: 糯米雞; Cantonese Yale: noh mái gāi), is a classic dim sum dish served during yum cha. The dish is also called by the literal English translations such as "steamed sticky rice with chicken in lotus leaf wrap." The portion size of lo mai gai is generally quite large, so there is a smaller variant created known as jan jyu gai (Chinese: 珍珠雞; Cantonese Yale: jān jyū gāi; literally: "pearl chicken").
Lo mai gai is mostly a southern Chinese food. It contains glutinous rice filled with chicken, Chinese mushrooms, Chinese sausage, scallions and sometimes dried shrimp or salted egg. The ball of rice is then wrapped in a dried lotus leaf and steamed. In North America, banana, or grape leaves may be used instead.
