    These buns are usually found in Chinese dim sum restaurants or in Chinese bakeries. Everything tastes best when homemade and these buns are no different. The bread dough is soft, tender and fluffy. It encases a sweet and moreish pork filling. Delicious!!!!

    These Chinese dumplings, known as shao may or shiu may, have a chicken filling, which is lighter than the traditional pork mixture. Wonton wrappers, sold in Oriental food stores, can be used, or you can make your own pasta wrapping. Serve these dim sum as the starter for a multi-course Chinese meal.

    The addition of green peppers is not the norm for dumplings but they taste great to me. This recipe has been one of my family’s favourites for years.
