It’s time to do away with those store-bought dumplings. Why eat frozen dumplings when you can prepare your very own fresh dumplings at home from scratch! Juicy minced pork paired with that mild sweet and peppery zing of the chives, such simple ingredients but packed with bountiful flavours – the perfect quick fix to appease those dumpling cravings.
Rather than frying, steaming the dumplings brings about that seductively tender texture. This classic combination of pork and chives enclosed in that chewy dumpling skin is so simple to make, just an hour is enough to cook up a feast for a dim sum party. Ground pork is the most common ingredient used, but nothing compares to the versatility of homemade dumplings. Feel free to play around with different combinations of ingredients and fill your table and tummies with row after row of these tiny savoury delights. Just make sure not to miss out on the Shaoxing wine, those few drops are the vital point to perfecting that deep flavour.
How wonderful it is, something so simple can be so flavourful and satisfying. Save on those service charge and turn your next night out into a hands-on DIY dumpling get-together!
