Steamed Rolls in Schezwan Sauce

It was a fun weekend dinner at home. Wanted to try something new with the indo-chinese flavors of our choice. I have made Momos, Pot-stickers, Dim sum, Shu mai, Wontons, and Dumplings, and have posts for everything. But this time I wished to make something that I haven't posted before.

The other reason to make a new post is that I am enjoying and am addicted to experimenting with my camera. I almost take more than hundred pictures of each recipe and select a few to post here, but propping, color combination, correct light, and getting it right is something that I enjoying.  It is rightly said, 'Practice makes man perfect'. No one is born with all the skills, but with determination and practice, one can surely learn a trait and do better in it.

This recipe is very similar to my Spring Rolls recipe. The filling is very similar but instead of frying the rolls, I used a steamer to steam the rolls and then tossed them in my freshly made Schezwan Sauce gravy. You should try this out. It was so delicious. If you do make this recipe, please share the pictures on my Facebook page. Instead of rolls, you could make steamed momos or steamed dumpling too.

  • Turn off the heat and remove it in a separate bowl and let the filling completely cool.
  • To assemble the rolls, place filling in the center of the wrappers as shown in the picture.
  • Fold the sides in and roll the wrapper tightly and seal the edge with water.
  • Place the rolls in a greased regular steamer or bamboo steamer and steam for 4-5 minutes of till the wrapped appear translucent.
