Chives Crystal Dumpling

Chives Crystal Dumplings from's been a while since I last made these delectable dim sum item at home. I think it was during the first phase of  MCO that I learned to make them. Today I made them for our tea snack. Tedious but worth the effort. We love eating and homemade ones are just as good if you get the right skin dough recipe. I still need to perfect the pleating. The skin is soft and crystal clear , filling is tasty too . #stayhome and #staysafe. Have mercy for the frontliners 🙏

the dumpling skin is soft

steam for 5 to 6 mins on preboiling steamer


Dough for the dumpling skin

110gm wheat Starch
15gm tapioca flour
1tsp sugar
1/4tsp salt
1tsp oil
185 ml hot boiling water

Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Slowly in the hot water till dough turns translucent. Add in oil . And knead till smooth. Rest dough for 15 mins. Divide dough into 2 portions. Cover one portion to prevent drying. Roll one portion into a long log. Divide into 16 balls, each about 8 to 9 gms. Flatten each ball with rolling pin to a round thin disc. It's ready for filling and pleating.
Once all the dumplings are ready , place them on a greased steaming plate and steam over preboiling steamer for 5 to 6 mins . Medium low heat is required for steaming the dumplings.

Nokdu-juk /Korean Mung Bean Porridge

Korean Mung Bean Porridge is what I have been wanting to cook for some time. Watching kdrama has great influence in my daily cooking. Finally, I cooked it for our breakfast.  Simple to whip up, has a mild smooth texture, has a nutting flavour and filling at the same time. Nutrients packed and easy for the stomach and great for people who are not feeling well. I used Maangchi recipe and it turned out great. A keeper for sure. Tasty and delicious as a stand alone meal.

Smooth, nutty and filling
I used short grain rice and split
Mung beans for this porridge
Korean sesame seed oil is best for this porridge, has a stronger fragrance

Gimbap/Korean Rice Roll


Dinner is Gimbap...I used whatever ingredients that I have at home for the fillings. Gimbap is a very versatile Korean rice roll because you can use any ingredients as fillings. I learned to roll gimbap a year ago and since then have enjoy eating them. All thanks to watching kdrama 😅 The gimbap I made tonight is a very complete meal. We have sauteed beef slices, flavoured spinach, egg Crepe, Korean Fish Cake, Crab Flavoured Filament Stick as fillings. Pickled ginger, wasabi , flavoured soy sauce are great accompaniment for gimbap.
