Whether you call them wontons or steamed dumplings, you just have to make them! I’ve got friends and relatives that live for dumplings and I’ve meant to make them for years. I’ve just never been great at steaming food. Mainly because I didn’t have a steaming basket. I did once, but it disappeared over the years. Any how now that I have a thermomix, dumplings are easy! Don’t worry you can make them in the food processor and steam 🙂 I made two types lemon grass chicken and bbq pork. Enjoy!
