How to make Siew Mai (Halal Version)


Har Gau (see recipe) and Siew Mai (or usually translated to Steamed Meat Dumpling) combine to form the one of the most popular pairing of dim sum dishes in Singapore. While Siew Mai is traditionally made with pork, this version uses chicken meat. This halal version steamed dumplings should work for everyone which you can certainly try out at home for breakfast or on the weekend and your kids will love it.

Recipe for Siew Mai
Ingredients for Siew Mai:
  • 250g minced chicken

  • ½ tablespoon finely chopped spring onions (white part only)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon chicken powder
  • ½ tablespoon corn starch
  • ½ tablespoon egg white
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
Round wonton wrappers (Cover the wantan skin with a wet cloth to prevent the skins from turning dry)
Finely diced carrots for garnishing

Method:
  1. Combine minced chicken with other ingredients in a large mixing bowl and seasonings and set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Put a piece of wantan skin on your palm.
  3. Put one tablespoon of filling on each wrapper, gather up the sides and leave the center open (Make sure the bottom is flat).
  4. Arrange the siew mai in a bamboo steamer and garnish the top with some chopped carrot for color. Steam over high heat for 10 - 15 minutes. Serve Siew Mai hot with sweet sauce and chilli sauce.
