After having this dumplings at the BINONDO WOK ... I decided to do some experimenting again in my kitchen.... this time.... I am trying to make KUCHAY and PORK dumplings. Kuchay are Chinese chives.. and it will be one of the main ingredients for my dumplings today. I guarantee you --- it is so easy to do--- you can have it for " merienda " ...
1lb ground pork
4 pcs. dried mushrooms ( soaked in water and chopped finely )
12 pcs. chives ( chopped finely )
1 whole egg
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
dimsum wrapper.. ( try to get the round wrappers instead of the square ones )
* to seal your dumplings --- you need a mixture of 1 tsp cornstarch and 2 tbsp water.
+ Mix all the ingredients above except the dimsum wrapper. Then get a tablespoon and spoon the mixture into your dimsum wrapper. Form them into dumplings. These dumplings can either be steamed or pan fried. Leftover dumplings or dumpling mixture can be stored in the freezer. Arrange them in a plastic container so that they do not touch each other.... ( don't put uncooked dumplings in freezer bags ).
DON'T YOU THINK MY RECIPE WAS AS EASY??????
