Sayur Lodeh With Lontong

This Sayur Lodeh is delicious served with Lontong, as in rice cakes or compressed rice. You can also mix in some soften bean curd sticks, if available. If you prefer this dish without the rice, then you can add some mung bean's thread for a substantial meal. I have a video on how to make the Lontong, please check out the video below and thanks for watching.

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.
