Cooking Class: Siew Mai Dumpling

Previously on Cooking Class, you can read about my first experience here and my first recipe here.

This second recipe has been pre-made by Chef Joel as it’s time-consuming… it requires at least 2 hours prior to prepare. Since we have limited time, we continued from the filling portion. As such, this will be a short post since we missed the preparation of the mixture.


Chef Joel demonstrating the right way to fill in the wanton skin with the siew mai mixture. He deftly pushed the mixture in without tearing the skin :-)


Me struggling to fill in the mixture. I did accidentally tore 1 wanton skin :p


Ta daa!!! Our golden treasure ;-)

Just fill the pot with water and place the dumplings on top of the steamer tray. Both pot and steamer tray thingy actually comes with the Samsung Microwave Convection Oven, unfortunately forgotten to snap it :-) Set for steaming in the Samsung Microwave Convection Oven for 10 mins. Yes, this oven can steam, baby! Just select the Steam function, dial 10 mins and press Start. Easy peasy! Now I am secretly wishing that Samsung will give me one *grinning widely*


The finished product: Siew Mai Dumpling. Taste very delicious too! You can see the steamer tray here… nice and solid.

For the full recipe, you can view it here. Stay tune for the last post of Cooking Class next week ^.^
