Steamed Siew Mai 燒賣 Pork and Prawn Dumpling Dim Sum

Hey Beautiful,
Raise your hand if you love to eat Dim Sum? I know I do! According to Google, Dim Sum is a Chinese dish of small steamed or fried savory dumplings containing various fillings, served as a snack or main course.

One of the most popular Dim Sum is Steamed Siew Mai. You can’t go for a Dim Sum without ordering Siew Mai. Personally, I’d rate a Dim Sum Restaurant by eating their Siew Mai. I think if you can’t get Siew Mai right, there is no point to make another dumpling.

However, keep in mind Dim Sum can be super expensive too. Well, a plate of Dim Sum can cost easily RM5.00 to RM5.50 per plate here in Malaysia and for some well-known restaurants are selling about RM7-10 per plate which can be super expensive.

I guess sometimes it’s still worth of making your own dim sum. Today, I’m going to share Steamed Siew Mai Recipe, which is super easy to make!

My Steamed Siew Mai is savory, juicy, fresh and super delicious, I promise you that.

Hope you’ll enjoy this classic recipe. Let me know how’s it goes.
