Vegetables steamed Dumplings

Vegetable dumplings is a family favorite and it takes less time to devour them than it takes to make them. Can't blame us, these little munchkins are so delicious that it is never enough!! A great snack for every age. Every time I make them I try different sauces.......that is the best part !! You can never go wrong with a combo of savory, sweet n spicy ! Hope you like it as much as we do !!

for the dumplings :

1/2 cup coarsely grated carrots
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions
2 teaspoons finely minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Bowl of water, plus additional water for steamer
10 - 15  small wonton wrappers

In a bowl add the carrots, cabbage,  pepper, scallions, ginger, cilantro, soy sauce, sesame oil, egg, salt, and pepper. Lightly stir to combine.

For the dumplings, remove 1 wonton wrapper from the package, covering the others with a damp cloth. Brush the edges of the wrapper  with water. Place the vegi mixture in the center of the wrapper. Shape as desired. Set aside and cover with a damp cloth. Repeat procedure using up all the filling.

In a steamer steam the dumplings for 10-12 min on medium heat. I used the the idli stand in steamer for the dumplings.

The sauce

This is my favorite part of the dish, it was fun getting creative with all the sauces.

sauce 1 : soy sauce mix with honey and mustard.
sauce 2:  ketchup with hot and sweet bbq sauce
sauce 3: honey  mixed with hot sauce, vinegar and dried mint powder.

Serve hot !! enjoy !! Print Friendly and PDF
