Dim sum – take 1!

Today I have attempted dim sum for the 1st time, using my fave cookbook of the mo – Gok Cooks Chinese. I’ll kept the text to a minimum as I have loads of pics 🙂

This is what its meant to look like – prawn moneybags, chicken & leek potstickers and fried rice:








These were all my ingredients:

Moneybags first:








Then pot stickers:








Then fried rice:

The finished dishes:

    Pretty good job! My husband and his family try to teach me their family Chinese recipes, which is always fun to try to reproduce. Here is the fried rice I made from their recipe: http://fudgingahead.wordpress.com/2012/04/01/fried-rice/

      Thanks 🙂 definite room for improbable, but not a bad first attempt. Your rice looks yummy! I used Chinese sausage, we haven’t had it before its quite different but nice. I don’t like bacon unfortunately – as my hubbie says I’m odd as even veggies like bacon 😉

        That’s funny! My husband likes Chinese sausage–it’s a bit too porky and salty for me, so we meet in the middle with bacon. 🙂 You could probably just sub in the sausage for the bacon in mine.

    all looks very yummy. i am a huge fan of chinese food but prefer cooking sweet than savoury. May just have to give this a try.
