Chicken Dimsums

First of all I would like to thank Achu from tangymind  and Jagruti from  Jagruti's cooking odyssey  for giving me the award for best innovative dish for my recipe on tavsalli (cucumber-cake) in their event . Do visit their blogs for some great recipes.

Chinese cuisine though an International cuisine , has become so familiar to the Indian kitchen that we have regularly started eating as well as making it at home. Dishes like manchurian, fried rice etc are liked by all.

Nowadays there is a craze of momos and dimsums . They are very similar to our steamed dishes and are oil free and very nutritious. I am posting the recipe of Chicken dimsums today. It is a very healthy and yummy dish , simple to prepare and mildly spiced.



 Ingredients :

For the filling :

200 gm ....................chicken mince
1 ............................onion(finely chopped and  
                                sauted)
2 tsp.........................pepper powder
1 tsp.........................soy sauce
2tbsp.......................fresh coriander finely chopped
salt
sugar

for the outer covering :

2 cups ..............maida
2 tbsp................rice flour
1 tsp.................oil
salt
water




Method :

Outer covering :

Make a dough by mixing maida, rice flour, salt and enough water and oil.
The dough should not be very soft.


Filling :

Boil the chichen mince with 4 to 5 garlic flakes in pressure cooker till soft.

When cold grind it in the mixer.

Saute the chopped onions till light pint and transparent.
Mix this ground paste with onion, pepper pd, salt, sugar, soy sauce and coriander.






How to Proceed :

Roll out small puri shapes from the dough.
Put little stuffing in the middle and fold as shown .
You get a special dimsum maker to steam these dimsums.
But you can also use your pressure cooker or idli maker for the same.
Add little water at the base and steam these dimsums in a similar way like idlis or dhoklas.













Serve with szechuan sauce.
