sui mai ,traditionally called shāomài is a flower shaped dumpling with an open top.I had these in Hongkong and the filling consisted of ground pork .The casing is thin and soft like wantons. They are popular in Chinese as well as in Japanese cuisine.I steamed these dumplings in a bamboo steamer purchased from Hongkong itself.Instead of ground meat you can also use ground shrimps and vegetables like mushrooms.I bought the ground pork from Godrej NatureBasket.The meat was fresh.In Hongkong the meat in cooked in Pork fat so it has more flavors .Readymade wrappers are not available in my locality ,so made the pork dumpling dough from scratch and flattened it to for siu mai wrappers.
