Pork Sweet Rice Flour Dumplings

This is a fusion recipe which is inspired from various recipes, we have a number of traditional Indian recipes which uses the rice flour for making dumplings. But these dumplings are mostly sweet prepared during the festivals, or the harvesting season filled with sweetened coconut fillings. One of the rice dumplings with sweet fillings which are popular all over Maharashtra in India are called Modak.

The Tibetan Momo are also quite popular all over India which was one of my favorite street foods to devour when I used to visit my maternal granny’s place in North Bengal, which are savory dumplings made of thin wrappers made of refined flour with meat or veggies stuffing.

Another type of dumpling recently I got familiar with are Mandu, Korean pork dumplings with wrappers made of a mixture of flours like refined flour, glutinous rice flour and corn starch. They are a bit starchy. prepared them for 2 consecutive Korean popup meals at home. They were great loved by the guests.

But gluten free food is always the priority while cooking for home and these rice dumplings are the best. They are gluten free, moist and tasted great with minced pork filling. I used a mixture of rice flour and Thai glutinous rice flour, which makes these dumplings soft, chewy and gives a nice glaze after steamed.
