Har gow

Har Gow is a dim sum of (vegetarian) shrimp. You can also use spinach as filling which I like even more.


This class will teach you how to make the dough. What you fill it up with is up to you. Spinach filling as an example is easy to make. You just boil the spinach, put it in ice water. Then chop the spinach up. Add some sesame oil, salt, sugar, vegetable bouillon and cook it a bit. Add some maizena and that's it. Experiment with it.

Now here comes the difficult part: the dough. You should watch this video on how to make the dough.

The exact ingredients:
- 180 g wheat starch (or potato starch for more translucency)
- 70 g potato starch (or half mixed with tapioca starch)
- salt
- vegetable oil
- 200 g boiling water

(in the video we do it on eyesight because the chef is very experienced ...)

First add boiling water to the wheat starch and knead it a bit. Then add the potato/tapioca starch and continue to knead it. You can already add some oil to it. After kneading, we close it off and wait a few minutes.

Then we knead some more until it's ready to be used.

The following video will teach you how to make the dumplings. Try to make them as thin as possible, then the dumplings will become translucent. Then steam it for 5 minutes and it's done.
