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.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

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.

You'll need

2¾ tsp dried yeast 600 gm (4 cups) plain flour 30 gm butter, softened 120 gm pickled cippoline onions, coarsely chopped (see note) 120 gm sopressa salami, finely chopped ¼ cup oregano leaves, coarsely chopped 1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary 160 gm stracchino, coarsely grated (see note) To serve: ricotta

Method

  • 01
  • Combine ¼ tsp yeast and 2 tbsp warm water in a bowl, stand for 10 minutes or until foamy, add 165ml warm water and 250gm flour and stir for 2 minutes or until smooth and shiny. Cover and stand for 3 hours or until doubled in size. Starter can be refrigerated at this stage and brought to room temperature before using.
  • 02
  • Combine remaining yeast and ¼ cup warm water in the bowl of an electric mixer and stand for 10 minutes or until foamy, add starter and beat for 4-5 minutes or until smooth. Add butter and combine. Add onion, sopressa and herbs and beat for 2-3 minutes or until well combined. Add remaining flour, combine and season to taste. Change to a dough hook attachment and knead for 3 minutes or until shiny and elastic. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat, cover with a tea towel and stand for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 220C. Knock back dough, turn onto a floured surface and roll out dough to a 35cm x 60cm rectangle, scatter stracchino along long edge, then roll lengthways into a cylinder. Cut into 12 pieces and place, cut-side down, onto a lightly oiled oven tray. Cover with a tea towel, stand for 30 minutes, then bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm, spread with ricotta.
