How to make Chicken Dimsums Recipe - Steamed Chicken Dumplings

  1. To begin making the Chicken Dimsums recipe,

  2. Now in order to make dim sum wrappers, take all purpose flour, add 1 tablespoon oil, salt and little bit of water and knead it with your hands till it becomes smooth. It should not stick to your hands. Cover the dough with a wet kitchen towel and keep it aside.

To make the filling
  1. Heat a saucepan with oil over a medium heat, add chopped garlic and saute till it softens. Add in minced chicken, salt , soy sauce and spring onions and cook until the chicken is slightly tender. 

  2. Switch off the heat and allow the filling to rest for a while. 

To make the Chinese dimsums
  1. Next step is to make the dimsums, so divide the dough into 15 equal pieces. Take one piece out and cover rest with the kitchen towel.

  2. Use a rolling pin to make a small circular disc from the dough. Use some dry flour while rolling otherwise it might stick to rolling pin. 

  3. Now place this disc on your hands and put a small portion of minced chicken in between the disc. Make sure not to overfill.

  4. Now use your fingers tips and dab water on the half outer edge of the disc.

  5. Now now gently pull the other dry half of the disc and place the dry edge over the wet portion.

  6. Gently press with your fingers so that it gets sealed properly. Now it will start looking like an empanada and in the next step we will give another fold from between so that both corner meet and we seal them again using water.

  7. Place it in an oiled plate and cover it with wet kitchen towel.

  8. Follow same procedure for making rest of the dimsums and place them in a properly oiled steamer and cook for about 20 minutes or till the the becomes the outer covering of the dimsums start looking translucent.

  9. Serve Chicken Dimsums along with Sichuan Style Bird Eye Chilli Sauce or any other sauce/chutney of your choice.
