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.

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."

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

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.

Melbourne's best late-night bars

Pepper rice with Greek-style yoghurt


You'll need

500 gm Greek-style yoghurt 80 gm cold salted butter, coarsely chopped 2 tbsp sage leaves 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil ½ tsp each onion, finely chopped 250 gm (1¼ cups) carnaroli rice 50 ml dry white wine 2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper 1 litre (4 cups) hot chicken stock 50 gm finely grated parmesan

Method

  • 01
  • Combine yoghurt and ½ tsp sea salt in a bowl, transfer to a sieve lined with muslin, place over a bowl and refrigerate overnight to drain (discard liquid).
  • 02
  • Cook half the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until foaming and starting to turn golden (1-2 minutes), add sage and stir occasionally until crisp (20-30 seconds). Drain and reserve leaves and butter separately.
  • 03
  • Heat oil and half the remaining butter in a large wide saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion, stir occasionally until translucent (3-4 minutes). Add rice, stir until grains become transparent (1 minute), deglaze with wine and cook until wine evaporates (1-2 minutes), then add pepper. Add stock, a ladle at a time, stirring continuously until stock is almost completely absorbed and rice is tender (16-18 minutes). Remove from heat, season to taste, stir in parmesan, sage butter and remaining chopped butter, cover and stand for 3 minutes, then serve hot with dollops of drained yoghurt, scattered with crisp sage.
