Red Cabbage and Baby Bok Choy Stuffed Steamed dumplings

I love this soft pillowed dumplings, steamed one not that much fried one. Yes for baked one too. But I didn't want to go for traditional ingredients so I played with different vegetables and still turn out awesome. I had it with my Bok Choy salad and was a very light but filling and healthy lunch. You can shape it anyway you are comfortable with, you can deep fry it, baked it and even put it in gingery broth to have it as soup is the best. I wanted to do that but my dumpling size was bit big for a soup spoon. But next time I will make it small and have it that way too. Again for the vegetables you can choose your family favorite too.

Ingredients :

1/2 head of small red cabbage
1 carrot
few florets of baby bok choy
1 small onion
2 stalks of celery
5-6 water chestnuts
small handful of bamboo shoots
5 cloves of garlic
1 thai chili
Few leaves of Thai Basil
long piece of ginger - I love ginger so I always take more.
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
freshly cracked Black pepper
Wonton wrappers


Take all the vegetables and chop it in food processor, not puree, just in small pieces so its easy to stuff it, otherwise you can do it by hand too.
Heat a wok, add sesame oil, then add ginger, chili, garlic and saute for minute.
Add rest of the vegetables and mix it.
Add all the sauces and black pepper and taste it.
Try to avoid adding salt, because salt will help vegetables to lose their water and then you have to cook more and vegetables will get mushy. So adjust your soya sauce in it.
Take it out and let it cool.
Once the mixture is cold, start stuffing in wrapper.
Take one wrapper, put a tbsp. of stuffing in middle.
Put water across the edge and seal it in half moon shape or what ever shape you wanted to give.
Get ready till all the stuffing is done.

Get your steamer ready. If you like you spread cabbage leaves on it or spray oil and put them without touching each other.

Cover and steamed for 10-12 minutes on a medium heat.
Remove dumplings from the steamer and put it in oven for keep it warm , or you can eat it as soon as it comes out.

Serve it with your choice of dipping. I made it from Sesame oil, mustard, teriyaki sauce and sriracha.

Dipping Sauce

I baked 4 of it to show you how it looks if its baked. But loved the steamed one more.
