Ingredients for making Dim Sum Asian Dumplings

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • ½ bunch cilantro, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons red curry paste
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup water as needed
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Directions for making Dim Sum Asian Dumplings

  1. Combine pork, onion, cilantro, red pepper flakes, red curry paste, garam masala, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder in a bowl.
  2. Mix well, then set aside. Place flour into a separate bowl. Slowly stir in the water as needed until a soft dough is achieved. There may be some water left over. Roll out walnut-sized balls of dough into thin circles.
  3. Fill each of the wrappers with about 1 tablespoon of the pork mixture. Moisten the edges of the wrapper, then fold in half, sealing to create a half moon shape.
  4. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Place the dumplings in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Steam until the dough becomes glossy, about 10 minutes.
  5. To make sauce: Combine peanut butter, cayenne pepper, sugar, and vegetable oil in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl. Cook in the microwave on High for 30 seconds and stir. Serve with the dumplings.
