Seven ways to do dumplings

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.

Best feta recipes

Feta's tang livens up all sorts of dishes, from beef shin rigatoni or blistered kale ribs to Greek-style roast lamb neck.

Recipes with zucchini

Whether served raw with olive oil, grated with fresh herbs, or pan-fried in a pancake - zucchini is a must-have ingredient when it comes to spring cooking.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

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.

As the shutters come down in other Australian capitals, Melbourne's vibrant nightlife is just hitting it's stride. Michael Harden burns the midnight oil at the city's best late-night bars and diners.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Prawn ceviche with guacamole and white corn tortillas


You'll need

  Prawn ceviche 4 vine-ripened tomatoes, peeled, seeds removed and finely diced 2 Lebanese cucumbers, peeled, seeds removed and finely diced 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 kg small prawns, peeled, veins removed, tails intact 10 limes, juice only 2 Spanish onions, finely chopped 1½ tsp Tabasco   Guacamole 3 ripe avocados, halved, stones removed 1 long red chilli, seeds removed, finely sliced 1 lime, juice only   White corn tortillas 235 gm masa white corn flour (see note) 2 tbsp plain flour

Method

  • 01
  • For guacamole, using a spoon remove avocado flesh, place in a bowl and coarsely mash. Add chilli and lime, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and combine well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 02
  • For white corn tortillas, combine masa white corn and plain flour with 1 tsp sea salt in a bowl, then add 1-1¼ cups water and mix to a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes or until elastic, then divide into 12 even-sized pieces. Working with 1 piece at a time, keeping remaining pieces covered with a damp tea towel, roll into a 15cm-diameter circle and cook in an ungreased heavy-based crêpe pan or frying pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden. Repeat with remaining dough. Keep warm until needed.
  • 03
  • Place tomato and cucumber in a small bowl, add olive oil, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until required. Place prawns in a non-reactive bowl, add lime juice, 1 cup water and onion, season to taste and combine well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 40 minutes or until the prawns start to turn from opaque to white. Add tomato and cucumber mix, Tabasco and combine well. Serve with tortillas and guacamole.

Note Masa white corn flour is corn soaked in lime water then ground to a flour. It's available from Monterey Mexican Foods.


In Mexico, raw prawns are used for this popular ceviche; elsewhere in South America, cooked prawns are usually used in a mixed seafood ceviche along with squid and octopus.
