Here’s a fun and creative vegetarian dish for you to try.
YIELD: 2 servings
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- Pinch or salt
- 1/4 tsp JGM Products curry powder
- 1/4 tsp JGM Products roasted geera
- Water for kneading
For dumplings stuffing:
- 1 small bundle Pak Choi, chopped
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 small onion or 1/2 onion, chopped
- Hot pepper, as you like
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp butter/margarine
- 1/3 cup Sweet peppers, sliced
- 1/3 cup Mushrooms, sliced
- 1 Onion, sliced
- 1 tbsp green seasoning
- Salt to taste
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pot over low heat. Sauté onions, garlic, pepper and tomatoes. Add Pak Choi pieces. Cook until tender. Set aside.
- To make the dough for the dumplings, combine flour, salt, curry powder and roasted geera. Add water and knead into a smooth dough ball.
- Roll out dough and cut into strips, then cut each strip into smaller pieces. See video for demo. Please note you can cut the strips into any shape and size you like. I rolled my dough out into less than a 1/4 inch thickness.
- Place some of the cooked Pak Choi on one side of the dough strip. Fold and seal the ends. You can use a fork to ensure the edges are properly sealed.
- Boil all stuffed dumplings for 2-3 minutes or until the dough is cooked through properly. Remove from the water and set aside.
- Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pot. Sauté onion, mushrooms and sweet peppers. Add butter and salt to taste. When butter is melted, add the boiled dumplings and green seasoning. Mix well.
- Time to enjoy your pak choi stuffed dumplings.
This dish is meant to be a fun one! You can add any vegetables you want and in any quantity. The measurements given are based on my liking.
You may have extra cooked Pak Choi left behind depending on the size of the bundle you are using but you can either make more dough for the dumplings or you can put it away for another meal like I did. Just remember to add more veggies, butter and green seasoning if you do decide to make more dumplings.
The curry and geera that are added to the flour for the dumplings can be eliminated if you like but they add some fantastic extra flavor so you can determine if you want a strong taste or a more subtle one. Adjust the measurements accordingly.
I think you should try this soon! Biting into those dumplings and getting that pak choi inside is like opening a box of surprises! The flavors from the butter/margarine and the vegetables just add to the dumplings and gives a complete meal!
