Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

You'll need

500 gm grape or cherry tomatoes 1 red capsicum 2 tsp cabernet sauvignon vinegar or other red wine vinegar 6 baby golden or red beetroot, trimmed, boiled, peeled and halved ½ tsp cayenne, plus a pinch 4 dry-aged yearling grain-fed rib-eye steaks (about 400gm each), at room temperature For shallow-frying: vegetable oil 75 gm (½ cup) plain flour 85 gm (½ cup) fine cornmeal 3 (110gm each) white onions, cut into 1cm slices and separated into rings ½ cup buttermilk To serve: grainy mustard

Method

  • 01
  • Char-grill or barbecue tomatoes, turning for 2 minutes or until just beginning to collapse, then place in a bowl. Char-grill or barbecue capsicum for 5 minutes or until charred. Cool slightly, then peel, remove seeds and cut into thin strips, add to tomatoes with vinegar, beetroot and a pinch of cayenne, then season to taste and stir gently to combine.
  • 02
  • Brush steaks with a little oil, then barbecue over medium heat for 6 minutes on each side for medium rare or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate, season to taste and leave for 10 minutes.
