Dimsum – Pork and Spinach

Dimsum and damplings………………..One of my favourite dish when we go to chinese yum cha or dimsum and dampling house. I made my version larger than the usual dimsum or siomai size.  Its like triple the size! So believe me just 3 pcs of this siomai makes your stomach full.  To be honest, this siomai should better come with a wrapper, but since when I finished my siomai mixture and checked my fridge for a wrapper. Gosh, I don’t have any! Since it was 7:00 in the evening and most of the chinese-asian store are already closed, I don’t have any choice but to steam this as it is. (for your information, most of shops here in NZ closes at 6:00pm). So, I learned my mistakes that before you make any dishes, you need to carefully checked all the ingredients very well………………………..Did you know that the vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, manganese, zinc and selenium present in spinach all serve as powerful antioxidants that combat the onset of osteoporosis, atherosclerosis and high blood pressure. and also by inhibiting the angiotensin I-converting enzyme, peptides within spinach have been shown to effectively lower blood pressure.

Ingredients: makes 30-35 ocs of dampling depending on your desired size

  • 1 bunch of spinach (slied 1 cm long)

  1. OMG Nors. This looks so GOOD. You’re killing me here. Your pictures always jump off the page!

  2. This looks fantastic even without the wrappers. I’m thinking of trying something like it with smoked salmon in place of the pork mince might also be delicious–either way, I know I’d be very happy to eat it either as siomai or plain steamed!

  3. hmmm i love dumplings! these look so good!
