Lo mai gai (Chinese: 糯米雞; Cantonese Yale: noh mái gāi), literally "glutinous rice chicken", is a classic dim sum dish served during yum cha. 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; lit. '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.
