Recipe :

Dim Sum Wrapper

  1. Add all the dim sum ingredients together in a bowl

  2. Add boiling hot water, little at a time and continue stirring the mixture until a dough forms.

  3. Knead the dough for the right consistency. You can use Maida as required to get an even dough.

  4. Add oil and make a smooth round ball of dough. Cover with cling film and set it aside.

Tempayy Filling:

  1. Place the pan on a stove and add 3 tbsp of oil. Once the oil is hot, add chopped onions and cook until translucent.

  2. Now add 2 tbsp of ginger-garlic paste and fry until the mixture is fried well.

  3. Add the ground tomatoes and continue frying.

  4. Add chili powder, garam masala, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and Kashmiri chili powder.

  5. Cook until the mixture has dried, and the oil separates out from the mixture.

  6. Now add chopped tempayy to this and mix well. You don’t need to cook it more at this point.

  7. Remove mixture from pan and keep aside.

Dim Sum:

  1. Sprinkle some maida on a clean surface. Take a small ball of dough and roll it out.

  2. Roll it out as thin as possible, without any tear. Now use a cutter to get the perfect round shape.

  3. Dab some water around the edges of the wrapper so that it helps you wrap the dim sum securely after filling.

  4. Hold the wrapper in your hand and add some tempayy filling in the center.

  5. Pleat the dim sum wrapper on both sides and seal it. The water around the edges will help seal the wrapper.

  6. Steam the dim sums for about 12 mins in the steamer and serve hot with a spicy chili oil or hot sauce.


Tempeh is one of the best natural vegetarian sources of protein with a high protein and fibre content thanks to the natural fermentation process. For even the most inexperienced cook, the preparation of Tempeh is simple: simply unbox and use as cubes or mince the Tempeh, season/ marinate it liberally with your choice of spices, and sautee the Tempeh with a bit of oil for five to seven minutes. ...

Tempeh is plant-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free, with 19 grams of protein per 100 grams and only 1.6 grams of net carbs.

It has a mild nutty flavour and a slightly spongy, solid texture. Because the tempeh cubes absorb flavours well , we recommend seasoning even the flavoured cubes if you want the flavour to pop.

Thanks to the porous nature of tempeh, it absorbs the flavours of whatever it's mixed with and helps make a tempeh biryani that is quick to cook yet packs a savoury punch.
