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

Buckwheat tagliatelle, crisp herbs, Brussels sprouts and burnt butter


You'll need

600 gm Brussels sprouts, trimmed, leaves separated, hearts torn 250 gm butter ¼ cup each rosemary and oregano 1 cup (loosely packed) sage leaves 4 garlic cloves, thinly shaved on a mandolin 2 anchovy fillets, torn Finely grated rind and juice of ½ lemon Finely grated parmesan, to serve   Buckwheat pasta 200 gm buckwheat flour 100 gm “00” flour 3 eggs

Method

  • 01
  • For buckwheat pasta, process ingredients and 2 tsp sea salt flakes in a food processor until a smooth dough forms, then turn onto a work surface and knead until dough comes together, adding more flour if necessary to prevent sticking. Wrap in plastic wrap and rest (20 minutes), Roll out dough to 2mm thick, cut into 6mm-wide strips and set aside on a tray dusted with flour. Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water until al dente (3-4 minutes), then drain (reserve 60ml pasta water).
  • 02
  • Blanch Brussels sprouts until just tender (1-2 minutes for hearts, 30 seconds for leaves). Drain then set aside.
  • 03
  • Heat butter in a large frying pan over high heat until foaming and nut-brown, then add herbs, garlic and anchovies and stir until herbs are crisp and garlic is light golden (1-2 minutes). Add lemon rind and juice and Brussels sprouts and stir until wilted (1-2 minutes), then add pasta and enough pasta water to form a little sauce. Toss to combine. Serve hot scattered with parmesan.
This recipe is from the May 2013 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

Buckwheat flour varies greatly from brand to brand; some are more processed than others, producing dry or chewy pasta. For this recipe, we prefer to use SF Health Foods buckwheat flour. Buckwheat pasta needs to be rolled and cut soon after it’s made, so keep resting time minimal.
