sweet [lemon and cinnamon] 'dumplings'
Explanation:
I know that they are not technically filled like dumplings are, but this is what came to mind when I saw the pictures of them sitting in amongst the rice. I've added lemon and cinnamon in brackets, as all the recipes I've seen contain them. It's a bit of a shot in the dark, but I think it conjures up the right image when paired with the rest of the description of the dish.

I should correct myself: like *some* dumplings are, as suet dumplings, for example, are not wrapped around a filling!
