    These look great! I just blogged my Vegan Wontons from yesterday (used bread flour for the wraps) and I was so thrilled how they turned out. I must get a steamer for next time! Happy Year of the Dragon!

    I was so surprised when we tried our first spring rolls and dumplings, how easy they were to make! No more store bought especially with recipes like these!

    Oh my, Purabi. These dumplings look so good. All I need is either Sriracha or just lite soy sauce would do. 🙂 Thank you for sharing the recipe and Happy Chinese New Year to you too!! 🙂

    Purabi, your daughter is a doll! She fit right in with your Chinese New Year photos and her red shoes and sweater — so cute! So are these dumplings. I can almost “taste” the tempting filling! Thanks for your tips on making these at home.

    Thanks, Kimby! Yes, the filling was indeed delicious…thanks to the unique taste and texture of Shiitake mushrooms!

    Deeps, yes, it took me a while to figure out the exact way they do it in the restaurants. But it is worth the effort when you see a sense of satisfaction in your guests’ faces after all!

    Belinda, thanks for your comment. Dumplings are such fun to experiment with, isn’t it?
    Jenn, thank you very much! I am also following you right back!

    Ray, thanks for your suggestion. Yes, Sriracha or soy sauce would be perfect!! I’d choose Sriracha, however!

    Aarthi, thanks for bookmarking! Happy New Year!!

    Vicki, aww, that’s so nice of you!!

    Happy CNY, Purabi! Those dumpling looks lovely! If you want pure vegetarian food in HK, you should go to those pure vegetarian restaurant that are cater for the buddhism rather than the yum-cha restaurant. You will see the sign “齋” (vegetarian) out at the front.

    I love Shitaki mushrooms; we can get them dried from our local Asian markets in Toronto — they do have the loveliest flavour. Your dumplings look gorgeous, I would be very proud to serve them to my non-vegetarian friends.

    Awwww, you are an awesome friend, to make vegan dumplings just for your vegan friend 😉
    I am surprised to hear that the vegan restaurants in HK are not 100% vegetarian, as over here in Malaysia, the vegan restaurants take their food very seriously and they will serve purely vegan unless you find vegan food in a normal restaurants, then the waiters will inform you 🙂
