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

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.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Pumpkin cappellacci with sage browned butter


You'll need

1 butternut pumpkin (about 1kg), halved lengthways For brushing: olive oil 80 gm parmesan, finely grated, plus extra to serve 1 tbsp plain flour, plus extra for dusting Pinch finely grated nutmeg 1 quantity whole-egg pasta dough For brushing: eggwash   Sage browned butter 125 gm cold butter, coarsely chopped ¾ cup (loosely packed) sage leaves

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Place pumpkin, cut-side up, in a roasting tray, brush with a little oil, season to taste and roast until tender and caramelised (45 minutes-1 hour). Cool slightly, spoon out flesh (discard skin and seeds), place in a sieve placed over a bowl to drain excess liquid (1-2 hours). Transfer to a bowl (discard liquid), add parmesan, flour and nutmeg, season to taste, then mash with a fork to combine. Refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Cut pasta into 8cm squares and set aside on a lightly floured tray. Working with one square at a time (and keeping remaining pasta covered), place a tablespoon of pumpkin mixture in the centre and brush edges lightly with eggwash. Fold in half diagonally and press around filling to seal and create a triangle. Brush base points of triangle with eggwash, then fold in to meet one another, pressing together to seal well. Set aside in a single layer on a lightly floured tray and repeat with remaining pasta and pumpkin mixture.
  • 03
  • Cook pasta, in batches, in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until cappellacci float to the surface and are al dente (3-5 minutes). Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for sage browned butter, heat a saucepan over high heat. Add butter and cook until foamy and nut-brown (4-6 minutes). Remove from heat, add sage leaves, stir to combine, then spoon over cappellacci and serve hot with extra parmesan.
