To make steamed yam bean dumplings, you can start by making the savory yam bean filling first. The full recipe for this is at www.huangkitchen.com/stir-fry-savory-turnip-fillings.
Then prepare the ingredients needed to make the dumpling skins.
In a mixing bowl of a stand mixer, combine wheat starch and the tapioca flour.
Add in salt followed by sugar and using a dough hook on low speed, mix everything till well combined.
Pour in BOILING water and on low speed, stir immediately to mix well.
Then add in the vegetable oil.
Using the dough hook and on low speed, knead into a dough.
Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and when the dough is cooled slightly, knead with your hand on a floured surface until smooth.
Cover and rest the dough for about 15 minutes.
Divide dough into 6 portions ( smaller portions to your preference ).
For each portion of dough, flatten into a thin sheet on the floured surface with a rolling pin.
Using a round cutter, cut the thin dough into round shapes. This will ensure the dumpling wrappers are of the same size.
Continue to roll and cut into round wrappers for the rest of the smooth dough.
To make the dumplings, first fold the wrapper into a semi-circle, sealing slightly on one end.
Place one heaped tablespoon of savory turnip fillings into the centre of the wrapper.
Pleat one side of the edge of the wrapper and secured to the other side into a half moon shape.
Continue to pleat to the end and make sure the edge is sealed tightly. And we're done!
Repeat the same for the rest of the round wrappers and filling.
Arrange the dumplings onto a well greased steaming tray. Steam over high heat for about 12 minutes or until the skin turns translucent.
Remove from steamer once the dumpling skin turns translucent and brush with some fried garlic or shallot oil while still hot.
Put the warm vegetable dumplings on a serving plate, garnish with some fried garlic or shallot, red chillies and chopped green onions before serving.
These dumplings are nice eaten on its own or with chilli sauce. The skin stays soft even when cooled & the turnip filling is so sweet & juicy.
These dumplings are so good, you just can't stop eating a few in one go. So Enjoy! For more, like us on Facebook and get instant updates on our latest recipes at www.Facebook.com/huangskitchen
