Deep Fried Salted Egg Siew Mai 黄金咸蛋味烧卖

I had a thumbs up from my family for this Deep Fried Salted Egg Siew Mai 黄金咸蛋味烧卖 is very nice! The salted egg yolk taste is not predominant in this dish. It is actually subtle but provides enhanced flavouring to the dumplings, making it palatable for people who like or hate salted eggs. I added simple seasonings + Golden Salted Egg Powder, finely chopped curry leaves, coriander, spring onions and shiitake onto minced meat. Instead of the normal steaming, I did a deep fried version. 

Ingredients (enough to make 20 to 25 pcs of dumplings) :
  • 500 gm of minced pork 
  • 6 pcs of shitake mushrooms (rinsed, trimmed and finely chopped)
  • 20 to 25 pcs curry leaves (finely chopped)
  • 1 full stalk of spring onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 full stalk of coriander (finely chopped)
  • 25 pcs of round dumpling pastry/skin
  • 2 tbsp tobiko (flying fish roe) as toppings
  • curry leaves and coriander leaves for garnishing
  • cooking oil for deep frying

Prep for Golden Salted Egg Seasonings :
  • 4 tbsp Knorr Golden Salted Egg Powder
  • 4 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tsp sugar

Other Seasonings : 
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 tsp Knorr Ikan Bilis Powder
  • 2 tbsp shaoxing cooking wine
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

(tsp = teaspoon; tbsp = tablespoon)
