Dim Sum

  • RECIPE MAKES: 8 Dim Sum
  • PREP TIME: 30 min
  • COOK TIME: 15 min

For this recipe you will need a saucepan & a general or bamboo steamer.

step 1

To make the dough add the Fate Low Protein All-Purpose Mix, water, oil and vinegar to a bowl.

step 2

Mix until combined then transfer to a clean, lightly dusted surface (using Fate mix) and knead well until the dough is smooth.

step 3

Weigh the dough and divide into 8 even pieces.

step 4

Using a rolling pin, roll each piece into a flat even circle (approx 10cm diameter circle).

step 5

Half fill a saucepan of water, cover with steamer and bring to boil.

step 6

Whilst the water is coming to the boil make the dim sum filling. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add sesame oil.

step 7

Add the shallots, capsicum, mushrooms, garlic, thai basil and thai 7 spice to the pan and stir for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables soften.

step 8

Take one of the dough circles into the palm of your hand and place approx. 1 Tbsp of filling in the centre.

step 9

Fold the dough over into a semi-circle and gently press the edges with your finger tips to seal.

step 10

Repeat the process to fill all dough circles and use up all filling.

step 11

Carefully place each dim sum into the steamer, using tongs and steam for 15 minutes or until they appear translucent.
