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.
