Winnie Eats: Homemade Dumplings

dumplingtime dumplings roll dimplings flat dumplings filling \dumplings close up 2 dumplings close dumplings cooking dumplings finished My family are now back in Hong Kong but while they were here, you may have noticed the instagram video featuring some delicious dumplings we made as a family. My family are pros at making dumplings - but I am super rusty as I don't make them very often, once a year at most for our annual Christmas Eve hot pot! The dumplings we made were ones that we just boil up and in Cantonese Chinese they are called 水餃 or Sui Gao (literally water dumpling). The dumpling wrappers are simply made using just flour and water. Ready-made wrappers at the Chinese Supermarket are a convenient alternative otherwise a quick google will bring up lots of variations on how to make them. Anything goes when it comes to the recipe for the filling - we used a variation of minced pork, chives, dried shrimp, chinese mushrooms and Chinese cabbage. Seasoned with soy, a little chicken powder for extra flavour and we added some fish powder (plaice) which my family brought back from HK. Once cooked, the dumplings are dipped into a variation of condiments such as soy/sesame oil/chilli oil/satay sauce which is seriously the most satisfying thing ever.

  14. OMG Winnie. Stop tempting me with all this beautiful food! STOP STOP STOP! :P On a more serious note, these look absolutely delish! I've only had dumplings out of the freezer section and a few times from a Korean store, but never homemade. Maybe I'll look up a recipe and try to make them. :P

  22. I find that I don't get satisfied with just 5 dumplings, I need at least 10-15! I'm rusty too, haha but it's such a delicious thing.

    HK is hot, I usually tie my hair up! I love your pictures so much, what camera do you use? I'm thinking of getting a better camera so I can blog better !

    Thanks for commenting on my last post girl!

  25. Your dumplings are making my mouth water... I haven't made Sui Gao in ages...They are the easiest to handle at home, I must say. My friends and I as Singaporean expats in Tokyo make Sui Gao during Chinese New Year. Though I won't wait that long to make them again ;-)
