Another type of Chinese dumpling is made with glutinous rice. Usually, the glutinous rice dumplings, Zongzi, are triangle or cone shaped and can be filled with red bean paste, Chinese dates or cured meat depending on their region. Glutinous rice dumplings are traditionally eaten during the Duanwu Festival or commonly known as the Dragonboat Festival.
