Dumplings-Pot Stickers (Pork & Shrimp)



I made these dumplings sometime ago and they were really delicious. Since then, my kids have been craving for more. So last evening, I decided to make some for them. This time though, I made the dumplings using store-bought wrappers. The dumplings turned out great too! If you are keen on making your own wrappers, I do have the recipe over on my older post for these dumplings. Click here to get the recipe. Okay, have a good weekend and Happy 4th of July!

20g Ginger, finely minced
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp Sake or Chinese Cooking Wine

Mix the cabbage with 1 tsp of sea salt and let it rest for 10 minutes. Then, drain and squeeze out all the excess water.

Prepare the filling by combining all the above ingredients and marinate for about 30 minutes.

Serve the dumplings with the soy sauce mixture and some chopped scallions.

  8. Yums!! For those who like a spicy kick, can cut some small chilies (chili padi) and put them in the soy sauce. Or do it with a Sichuan twist and put in some chili flakes with chili oil. or... have it with mayo like gyoza!

    I am a complete dumpling fanatic!

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
