I have to admit I was feeling quite out of my normal mind when I decided I was going to spend an afternoon doing this. But I had just had dinner at a friend’s house and she had served home-made siew mai and it had seemed easy enough. I’d thought it would be a special treat for the hubby.. so I made not one, but TWO types of siew mai. I made pork and shrimp ones, and glutinous rice ones.
They are slightly laborious but aren’t difficult to make. And they are absolutely delicious. Feel free to add your favourite ingredients or omit stuff you don’t like. That’s the marvelous part about making your own dumplings.
