Shaomai or Dumpling as it is known in English is traditionally served as dim sum. I made these for my client’s party and were served as finger food/canapes. Great bite-size piece, right? I haven’t got the chance to write the recipe yet but will do so soon.
These dumplings are made of glutinous rice stuffed with meat, mung beans, mushrooms and chestnut, wrapped in bamboo leaves. It is steamed for a few hours. There many varieties of dumplings but the savoury ones are more popular.
