It’s a good day for dim sum!
This time around we thought about giving dim sum a try, and we choose to make our very own… Siew Mai ?? !
Wrapping the filling took a little practice before getting the hang of it. Patience is key. In any case, what’s important is not to rush into it when wrapping them. Slow and steady hands.
It’s a whole of fun making our own dim sum. We’d think that we will try doing har gao the next time round! So stay tuned people, and keep cooking! 🙂
