Siomai are very popular dumplings in various Asian countries. The idea comes from China, but the dish also caught on in the Philippines. The most common version of this dish is with pork, but also with shrimp, chicken or mushrooms. Classically it is also made with green onion, but I made my own version by adding fresh koriander and chili. With the addition of chili sauce or soy sauce, it is a really delicious dish 🙂


500 g ground pork
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 red onion, diced
1 red chili, chopped
a handful fresh koriander, chopped
1 medium size carrots, shredded
1 large egg
3 tablespoon powdered bread
2 tablespoon soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
wonton wrapper homemade


In a big mixing bowl, combine meat, garlic, onion, chili, koriander, carrots, egg, powdered bread, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly to combine. Fill the center of the wonton wrapper with a spoon of meat mixture. Wrap the edges around the filling and flatten the top using your fingers. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers and filling. Brush steamer (stainless) with oil. Steamed for 10-15 minutes. You can also fry it in deep oil. Serve with chili garlic oil 🙂
