  • 1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine (shao xing)
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  • Chinkiang (black) vinegar or soy sauce, to serve

Recipe's preparation

    To prepare the filling
  1. Place garlic and ginger into mixing bowl and chop 3 seconds, speed 7.

  2. Add shallots or garlic chives and vegetables to the bowl and chop for 10 seconds, speed 5. Depending on what vegetables are used, chopping time may vary. The desired consistency is finely chopped.

  3. Add the sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce, chinese cooking wine and potato starch and mix on reverse Counter-clockwise operation for 5 seconds, speed 1. Remove from mixing bowl and set aside. Rinse mixing bowl.

  4. Grease the varoma trays with oil. Place about a teaspoon of dumpling mixture into the centre of a gow gee wrapper, wrap and and place into prepared varoma trays. Be careful not to put too much filling in each wrapper and ensure the edges are completely sealed. The dumplings will expand slightly when they cook so when they are in the varoma trays, ensure they are not touching to avoid them from sticking together. 

     

    There are lots of great youtube videos that demonstrate a variety of wrapping techniques. Another option is to use a dumpling press.  

  5. To steam the dumplings
  6. Add 500g of water to the mixing bowl and put the varoma with the dumplings in place. Steam for 20 minutes, varoma, speed 3. 

  7. Serve with chinkiang (black) vinegar or soy sauce.

Tip

Potato startch can be replaced with cornflour, but you will need to double the amount of cornflour.

 

Alternative fillings:

- Replace some of the vegetables (except shallots or garlic chives) with roughly chopped firm tofu.

- Replace the vegetables (except shallots or garlic chives) with minced pork or minced chicken thighs. 

 

Instead of steaming, dumplings can be pan fried and steamed in the pan. To do this heat some rice bran oil in a frying pan to medium heat. Add the dumlings and pan fry on one side. Once golden brown, turn the dumplings over and add enough water to the pan to just cover the base, then cover with a lid and steam until cooked (all the water should be evapourated by this time). 

 

Put uncooked portions of dumplings in small freezer bags and use when you like.

    healthy_bree: oyster sauce is made from oyster mushrooms not oyster. You could leave it in as it gives a lovely flavour and silky texture to the mix.

    Submitted by healthy_bree on 26. March 2017 - 15:16.

    so easy to make. Left out oyster sauce for vegetarian/vegan. I had a little mix left over so froze in a ziplock bag. Also freezing the rest of the premade ones by lying them on a baking tray in the freezer, then when frozen putting in a zip lock bag, this helps them not stick together. Served with soy sauce.

    These are absolutely delicious! I used extra soy sauce instead of Oyster sauce to make them Vegetarian/Vegan . They were so easy to make, I didn't have any issues with the recipe at all, I will be making them again for sure!!  tmrc_emoticons.D

    Absolutely delicious! We always go out for dim sum, but thought I'd be adventurous... made mine using pork and threw in a few mushrooms for good measure. A great recipe.

  • These were my first attempt

    Submitted by Pinkbellee on 20. July 2014 - 14:43.

    These were my first attempt at home made dumplings and I was pleasantly surprised. Would possibly tweak a little with sauces in the filling next time (I omitted oyster sauce because I don't like it but it needed something vego like that...) but generally a tasty and easy recipe.

  • I purchased my Thermie last

    Submitted by Erinlj76 on 21. March 2014 - 13:35.

    I purchased my Thermie last November, and I would never have dreamed that I would ever attempt to make something like this. I am stunned at how easy (and how delicious) it was - I will DEFINITELY be making these again (and again and again...)
