HOW TO MAKE VEGETABLE SHUMAI
Step 1 / 3 Prepare The Dumpling Wrappers
Begin with making the dumpling wrappers. Take flour in a bowl and add 1 tsp of salt in it and add ½ cup of warm water in it. Knead a semi-stiff dough and let it rest for 25 minutes minimum. Now knead the dough again on a smooth platform for 5 minutes and make small dough balls out of it. Roll these dough balls out in thin circles and you can use as much flour as you need.
Step 2 / 3 Finely Chop The Veggies
You can take help of a food processor of you can finely chop the veggies using a knife too. Finely chop the tofu as well and mix everything together. Add 1 tsp of salt on this mix, transfer on a cloth and keep aside. Drain the water that comes out of the veggies after 5 minutes. We need them to be dry.
Step 3 / 3 Fill The Dumplings, Steam And Serve!
Now, put 1tsp of the filling on each wrapper and wrap. Remember to keep the top open. Steam the prepared dumplings for 10-15 minutes. Garnish with chilli oil or green onion leaves and serve with hot sauce!
