Vegetarian Sago Dumpling Recipe is a popular Thai street snack food made out of an outer layer of tapioca pearls filled with vegetables. 

I have created a vegetarian version with sauteed veggies like cabbage, carrot, and beans instead of the commonly used minced pork in the dumpling,This is an easy recipe after you master the art of making the circular discs of tapioca pearls and bringing the sides together to wrap up the filling within. Remember that the wrapped tapioca flour should be thin but firm, like explained in the procedure below.

This recipe can be made in advance, upto a day or two and kept in the refrigerator. Microwave till hot and serve.

Serve Vegetarian Sago Dumpling Recipe during evening, along with with drizzled garlic oil and soy sauce for snack or as a side with Thai Basil Vegetarian Fried Rice with Pineapple to make a meal.

Notes:

  1. If the dough seems too dry then sprinkle some water and knead again. If the dough seems waterlogged, add few more soaked tapioca and knead again. For perfect dough always keep the ratio of tapioca pearls to water as 1:1.
  2. If the dumpling breaks during cooking, then the wrap (made from tapioca dough) is too thin. So be careful while making the wrap, it should neither thick nor thin.

How to make Vegetarian Sago Dumpling Recipe

  1. To begin making the Vegetarian Sago Dumpling Recipe, first soak sago/tapioca pearls in 1/2 cup of  hot water till the sago turns translucent. Remember not to over-soak the pearls, else, the dough turns soggy.

  2. Mince garlic, cilantro leaves. You can take a couple of cilantro roots as well. Add finely chopped onion and mix together.

  3. Put a  Kadai/wok on medium flame and heat oil. Add the minced mixture, saute until the onion turn translucent and soft.

  4. Once the onions are soft, add finely chopped cabbage, carrot and beans. Stir well to combine.

  5. Next add soy sauce and pepper powder. Saute till all the ingredients are combined well. Turn off the heat. Keep aside and let the filling cool down completely.

  6. Meanwhile, take all the soaked sago in a bowl after draining water, wet you hands thoroughly, knead for 2 - 3 minutes until very pliable.

  7. Wet your  hands and take a small amount of dough, flatten and make a disc shape of around 6 cm. Place 1 teaspoon of the vegetable filling in the center, then close the flattened disc carefully and shape into a round ball.

  8. Keep the ball on a lightly greased plate. Repeat the process with the remaining dough and the filling. Now ready the steamer for cooking these balls.

  9. Before placing the balls in the steamer, brush the steamer plate with oil. Steam them for 15 minutes or till the sago becomes soft and transparent. The time required for steaming might vary upon the thickness of the wrapping.

  10. Meanwhile, prepare the garlic oil by heating oil in a tadka pan and add crushed garlic to it. Saute the garlic until brown and turn off the heat. Remove the garlic from the oil. The garlic oil is ready.

  11. Remove the Vegetarian Sago Dumpling from the steamer once the tapioca covering is soft and translucent by dipping a spoon into the oil in order to prevent the dumplings from sticking to the spoon.

  12. Brush each dumpling with garlic oil. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve hot.

  13. Serve Vegetarian Sago Dumpling Recipe during evening, along with with drizzled garlic oil and soy sauce for snack or as a side with Thai Basil Vegetarian Fried Rice with Pineapple to make a meal.
