This is 烧麦 (shāomài):
Which has the same character 麦 as in:
- 大麦 (dàmài = barley),
- 小麦 (xiǎomài = wheat), and
- 燕麦 (yànmài = oats).
These are types of grains, and seem unrelated to 烧麦.
Question: How does 麦 connect 烧麦 (shāomài), a kind of dumpling, with 大麦 (dàmài), 小麦 (xiǎomài), and 燕麦 (yànmài), types of grains?
