Deep Fried Dumplings (Ham Sui Kok)


I have not been participating in Aspiring Bakers for months and finally I am able to make it for this month's theme - Dim Sum Affair. Tried out one of my aunt's dim sum recipe - Ham Sui Kok. Though not a very successful attempt because I find it quite difficult to shape the dumplings. Making dim sum really needs practice. Well... it's still a fun attempt though! 



I am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #19: Dim Sum Affair (May 2012), hosted by Small Small Baker.

This is one of my favourite dim sum dishes, but I'm too lazy to make since it's easily available in dim sum restaurants here in Ipoh, yours look great too!
