Sui kow (水饺) - Featured recipe for Rasa Malaysia

sui kow, dumplings, Chinese dumplings

Two year ago, when I was just starting to cook for my family, a friend of mine made a strong recommendation that I visit Rasa Malaysia's food blog for its recipes and cooking ideas. When I browsed thru her blog, I was very amazed by her stunning shots and high level of professionalism in food presentation, not to mention her cooking and baking skills. Since then, I had been following her blog closely and even referred it as my “online cookbook”.

I have to say that her featured recipes are getting more and more interesting and impressive now. There are many cooking tips and methods I learnt thru reading her posting. Each time I visited her blog, I will be drooling and leaving with a hungry stomach. Her Penang-style cooking also makes me very homesick and I just feel like flying home the next day to satisfy my cravings.

Today, I like to thank Bee of Rasa Malaysia for featuring me as her guest writer. I had chosen sui kow (水饺) as my featured recipe because she loves dumplings. Co-incidentally, it is also my childhood favourite. I had never got bored eating it even until now. Hopefully by sharing my hubby's “self-proclaimed” authentic sui kow recipe, you will love sui kow as much as we do. You can find my write-up and more photos of sui kow at Rasa Malaysia's blog now. So hop over and see you there!

CY said...

Fantastic looking sui kows! I agree that adding the peas is a great idea, my po po always added peas into her sui kows...a burst of sweetness when you bite into them!

I agree that coriander is a must ingredient for sui kow as I have been brought up with this version:) I can have 4-5 pieces with my full bowl of wanton noodles!

Selba said...

I love eating sui kow but never managed to make it my own... :)

Katie said...

Dora said...

Mycookinghut: Lee Mei, I am used to moving home but the worst experience was moving over to Spore. With last min notice & tight deadline, I did it all by myself. Start packing after my son went to bed until 2am every night. Many unforeseen circumstances happened in between. I was so stressed out until I lost 5 kg in weight.

Those are some beautiful dumplings. I keep seeing Rasa Malaysia's site listed here and there but have only stopped by once or twice. Might have to browse through more carefully now. Thanks for the recommendation.
