Here is a very special but simple and quick dumpling recipe I learnt from my family. I made my first dumpling at the age of 7 in my late grandaunt’s house in Melaka. Coming from a multiracial background means I was exposed to a variety of food growing up and one of the cuisines I grew up cooking and eating is Malaysian Chinese food. Growing up in a house filled with tradition, it was lovely to see the kitchen table bustling with the activities in preparation for a family feast.
Folding dumplings was one of the many activities we did. Everyone from my late grandaunt to aunts, uncles and cousins were all busy filling wanton skins. Because there were so many hands working we were able to enjoy the fruits of our labour through eating together with the whole family. Home made delicious dumpling soup is what I will be sharing with you today.
The whole idea of creating such recipes is to really make it simple for you to put together and to enjoy the process of making dumplings with your loved ones as I did with mine. The best bit about making big batches is you can actually freeze the dumplings and take them out whenever you feel like having more!
