Pork Siomai

This recipe is inspired by my favorite chinese Chef Ching, I love to watch her cooking programme and she always inspires me to dish up these delectable meals, She definitely makes it looks so easy on the tele..hehe
Anyway, It's my first time to experiment on this dimsum recipe and actually it's not as difficult as I thought. It takes about 35 minutes to prepare and 6-8 minutes for the steaming process and it makes 16 dumplings. Well, it looks like siomai and it definitely tastes like siomai so maybe I did something right.
