Steamed dumplings are delicate, bite-sized treats of different fillings wrapped in a thin but elastic layer of dough. They are usually steamed in bamboo steamer baskets, which absorb excess moisture and condensation while allowing steam to move throughout the circular frame. It's a gentle cooking process that helps retain flavor and texture.
Steamed dumpling is a traditional festival food in China, which is a must-eat food in Spring Festival every year. Sometimes, people place a coin or candy inside the dumpling with the meanings of obtaining a fortune or having a sweet life.
Steamed dumplings are a great starting point if you want to take up challenge of making fresh dumplings for the first time.
