Dim Sum - Har Gao

Dim Sum - Har Gao
My 'heart warmer'.  
For the uninitiated, Dim Sum may be some odd looking dishes with new tastes and new way of eating.  If you have a chance to experience this chinese 'Brunch', go for it !

Usually, there is no menu.  The prepared dishes (as much as 20 or more varieties)are usually ordered off carts that are pushed around the dining room. The dishes are small so you will always have room for even more.The dishes may look odd and strange but not to worry. They are all edible  :-)  

Har Gao is one of my favourite.....

Dipped in black vinegar and ginger shreds

Heavenly !! 

Mix the following to form a paliable dough.  Set aside.
200gm wheat starch                  
50 gm tapioca flour
pinch of salt
200ml boiling water

Mix all thoroughly
250gm fresh schrimps (shelled, devined and coarsely chopped)
1 tbsp each, finely chopped .....
   bamboo shoots
   spring onions
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp sea salt
dash of pepper

'Roll' each portion of dough into thin discs.  A cleaver is just as good as a rolling pin.
Fill each disc with a heap teaspoonful of filling and pleat.
Steam the Har Gao for 10- 15 Minutes.
Serve them piping hot.
