HAR GOW, the Steamed Shrimp Dumpling - 蝦餃

A Dim Sum quite feasible at home

These Chinese dumplings called Har Gow are very popular, they are part of the Dim Sum, these small dishes that we can enjoy as starters or at any time with a good tea. The Dim Sum are very varied: chicken legs, fried shrimp dumplings, Siu Mai, white radish cake, etc.

Contrary to what most people may think, the Har Gow are not difficult to make, especially their dough which has a very special appearance and texture. You just have to accurately measure the flours and follow the technique to mix them.

As always with the Dim Sum, you should make a good quantity and freeze them. Your Hag Gow made at home will be cheaper and healthier, those from the industry will often contain fat and additives (glutamate, preservatives, etc.).
Do not forget to accompany them with the tasty sauce I show you in my recipe or with Sriracha Hot sauce. Bon appétit.
