Whenever we crave for siomai or dim sum, we go to our favorite Cantonese restaurant. Not so fond of Beijing jiaozi (Northern Chinese dumplings) so I was so ecstatic to find Karen’s famous basic siomai recipe. Go check it out. I followed what was written there (except I didn’t have singkamas) including making my own wrappers. Here’s my 1st attempt – not perfect (yet) but I’m posting it anyway. Those in the photos taste good! How come I find them not perfect?
1. I don’t think they look good. I need to know how to wrap them nicely. Did few styles based on how I see them here jiaozi style. Here’s a demo I just found.
2. I find the lumpia wrappers I made not thin enough.
I cooked too many for 2 adults and a small boy so I fry the leftovers the next day.
