Sticky rice dumpling (上海烧卖) Tag a dimsum lover💗
Happy Thursday, my Insta friends🤗. This little dumpling filled with sticky rice is best known as Shanghai style siu mai or shao mai. Siu Mai is one of the two most ordered dimsum dish, which is usually filled with meat and wrapped in wonton wrapper. Then, steamed in and served in bamboo steamer.
~ 1 cup of glutinous rice, soaked overnight, drained
~ 1/4 cup of chopped carrots
~ 1/4 cup of chopped mushrooms (use low moisture content like Shiitake)
~ 1/4 cup frozen peas
~ 2 tbsp grated ginger
~ 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
~ 2 tbsp soy sauce
~ salt and white pepper
~ 1-2 cups of veggie stock – separated
~ sesame oil
~ dumpling wrapper
In a heated pan with 2 tbsp sesame oil, sauté ginger and carrots until soft, add mushrooms and rice. Stir in all sauces and 1/2 cup of stock, let simmer for 5 mins.
It’s best to steam the rice in a steamer until cook but if you are in a time crunch like me, cook them in a rice cooker with the remaining stock, start with 1 cup. If you see some uncooked grain, add the remaining stock.
No pleating on this, simply put 1 tbsp of rice mixture in the middle of dumpling wrapper and seal like pictured. Add a pea on top and steam on high heat for 10 mins. Serve warm with your favorite sauces (hoisin, chili)
*If you make a big batch, you may freeze these after sealing them. Just steam without thawing and they taste just as great!🤩
What do you think? Let me know 👇🏻and have a great Thursday!💗
