Siew Mai II (Pork Dumplings II) & Award

Need to take a break from posting my CNY bakes to post this and to pass on this lovely award to fellow blogger friends. :)

I made siew mai again last week, this time using Nilmandra suggestion of adding a pea on top of each siew mai. How was it? Look nicer, right? I didn't have cilantro this time, so I made this without it. I found that the siew mai was more fragrant with the added chopped cilantro. Anyhow, it's still tasted good. Oh by the way, Evy helped me to put the pea on top of each siew mai. She is at this age of wanting to help in the kitchen.


1/2 pound ground pork
8 large shrimps, minced
1 tsp. Ginger juice or 1 Tbsp. minced ginger
1 green onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. sugar
Dashes of white pepper
1/4 cup of minced carrots for decoration
Some frozen green peas for decoration
Round wontan wrappers, as needed


1.  Add (A) in a bowl and stir in one direction until blended.

2.  Take a piece of the round wontan skin and place a sizable amount of filling in the middle, hold the skin up to cover the filling.  Decorate the top with some minced carrots and place a green pea in the middle (optional).  Finish the rest of the siew mai.

3.  Steam in boiling water for 15 minutes, using a bamboo steamer or any steamer that you have.  Serve with chili in oil.
