Siew Mai – Dim Sum for beginners


Dim Sum is a favourite cantonese “snack” of mine. They come in small portions like those spanish tapas. You can never have enough of these cantonese foodies as they come in small baskets of variety and in many flavours. There’s sweet, …

    Nice recipe. Do you have any Asian recipe books you’d recommend? I’m looking to buy a good Chinese (Sichuan) book and I’m thinking of going with a Fuchsia Dunlop book. What are you thoughts?

    Hey Phil, the Fuchsia Dunlop book has gotten good recensions, so I’d say go for it. I cook pretty mixed between chinese, indonesian and thai. My fave books are “Südostasiatische Spezialitäten” from Rosalind Mowe (in german) and “Thai Street Food” from Vatch. Basically, I follow my taste buds and year long experiences. If you’re all up for Sichuan, don’t forget the “chicken with dried chillies” It’s a must 🙂 hmm, you just gave me an idea…

    Can anybody help me how to make sure that my siew mai are fresh all day long when i serve to customers? At the moment, i know that my siew mai are not fresh when they are already in the steamer for several hours. How did other restaurants manage to make sure that their siew mai are not overcook? It tastes odd when they are overcooked, like too much water inside already from the steam.

    @Confuse: Hi, DimSum should be steamed and eaten immediately. You could prepare the dumplings and cover them with a plastic foil and refrigerate a few hours before. Then steam just before serving.
