Steamed Dumplings
Yield: 2 Dozen Dumplings Cooking Time: 30 minutes Difficulty: Easy Full Episode: A Trip to Thailand! (Season 3)

Directions:

  1. Combine chicken, chives, ginger, and shredded carrots. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Put a few dumpling wrappers on a flat work service. Brush the edges of the wrappers with water. Place a teaspoon of the chicken mixture in the center of each dumpling wrapper; gather the edges of the wrapper to the center to create a purse. Squeeze the edges to seal the filling inside. The final result should look like a mini purse with flat bottom and a curled frilly top.
  3. Repeat this process with the remaining filling and dumpling wrappers.
  4. Place the dumplings in a bamboo steamer and steam for 8 minutes.
  5. For the dipping sauce, combine the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and lime juice. Mix well and serve with the warm dumplings.
