Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 4-5
  • For the Dumpling skin (makes approx. 10 pcs):
  • 100g wheat starch (tang mien)
  • 30g tapioca flour
  • 170ml of juice / blue pea water
  • 1 tsp of shortening / vegetable oil
  • dash of salt

  • For the Dumpling Filling:
  • Ikea Vegetable balls

  • For the Salted Egg Yolk Mash:
  • Some vegetable oil
  • 3 salted egg yolks (cooked and mashed)
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ½ tsp minced ginger

  • Optional :
  • some Japanese ebiko

  1. Combine the wheat starch, tapioca flour an salt in a bowl. Cook the juice till boiling and add the hot juice into the flour mixture. Combine well and knead the mixture into a dough.
  2. Add the shortening or oil and further knead it into a smooth dough. Roll the dough into a longish shape and divide equally and cut into small pieces.
  3. Flatten one of the small dough piece and roll it thinly. Wrap one of the vegetable balls into the dough skin and ply the extra dough skin on the surface outwards, forming the "petals". Trim the outline of the dumpling neatly. Continue with the rest of the dough.
  4. Prepare the salted egg yolk mash by heating up some oil in a pot and adding the salted egg yolks. When the salted egg yolks start to turn foamy, add the minced garlic and ginger. Continue to cook it till the mixture turns all foamy. Remove from flame and set aside the salted egg yolk mash.
  5. Prepare all the wrapped dumplings on a plate or bamboo dim sum holder. When the water in the steamer has boiled, place all the steam plates and bamboo holder onto the steam rack and steam on high heat for 10 minutes till cooked. Remove and top with salted egg yolk mash and ebiko (if using) and serve hot.
