I had been planning to cook siomai on the new year and at last it was realized. A very tedious work that I did because it took hours of patience especially on the wrapping and steaming. My efforts did very well because these tiny dumplings were so delicious. The center sauce is a special spicy dipping that I bought in a specialty restaurant of dumplings. Here is the recipe.
1/2 kilo ground chicken
white onions, chopped
salt & pepper
Heat olive oil in a pan. Saute onions until light brown then add the ground chicken, salt and pepper, carrots mix well then set aside. In a mixing bowl, put egg, flour celery and the ground chicken. Mix thoroughly until well blended. Get a siomai wrapper and put teaspoonful of the chicken mixture then top with shrimps. You can wrap it into triangles, squares or pouch like depending on your choice of wrapping. Be sure that it is sealed by using water in the ends . Continue until the mixture is consumed. Arranged all the siomai in a steamer and have it steamed for 20 minutes. Serve hot together with a spicy sauce, calamansi and soy sauce.
