Steamed Dumpings

During this time of quarantine we need to find things to keep us positive and busy. I have decided to use this time to try out some new recipes and techniques that I may be avoiding. I got a bamboo steamer as a Christmas gift so I decided to break it out and make some dumplings. I crafted my own recipe for the filling, but the dumpling dough recipe comes from Kannamma Cooks!

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2-3/4 cup VERY hot water
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp Vegetable oil

For the Filling *** this again was me having fun in my kitchen so the amounts are all guesstimates

  • 1 Chicken Breast, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup Red Onion
  • 2 tsp Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Shredded Carrots
  • 1 tsp Ginger
  • Salt + Pepper
  • 1/3-1/2 cup Soy Sauce

Lets Get Cooking

Add flour + salt + 1 tsp vegetable oil + hot water and mix well. Knead the dough for about 3-4 min until soft. Once fully mixed add 1/2 tsp oil onto the dough to keep it from drying out. Let rest in the refrigerator. It is recommended that the dough is left over night, however, I let mine sit about 4-5 hours and it worked perfectly.

Cut the chicken breast into small cubes, if you have a food processor, use this to get a ground chicken consistency.

Dice up the red onion and shred the carrots.

In a small bowl combine chicken + red onion + carrots + garlic + ginger + salt + pepper.

Add soy sauce and let it marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

After the meat and dough have rested cut the dough out into small circles.

Using a kitchen spoon, add the filling into the dough and pull up the sides to encase the filling.

Line the bamboo steamer with cabbage if you have it, I didn’t so I used spinach instead & it still worked!

Set up the steamer and steam for about 12 minutes.

Carefully remove, serve with soy sauce & enjoy!

I was super nervous about using the steamer for the first time, but everything cooked through and they were so delicious! I could not stop eating them and they were incredibly easy to make. So don’t think just because you are using a new kitchen tool that it has to be scary. Now I can’t wait to see what I can make next using my steamer. If you try out this recipe please let me know, I would love to hear what you think!

Made with Love,

Hannah
