※ Home Made Dim Sims


  • 500g minced chicken
  • 500g minced pork
  • 1 shallot
  • ¼ savoy cabbage finely shredded
  • 1 finely chopped carrot
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 pack dim sim skins
  • Thai Basil to Taste (I generally add a lot of basil, mint & coriander, that is why I wrote to taste)
  • Vietnamese Mint to taste
  • Coriander to taste
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Combine all ingredients (except dim sim skin) in a large bowl and massage together.
Take a heaped tablespoon of mixture and wrap with the dim sim skin, sealing with a little water.
Either deep fry at 180 degrees for 5 minutes, or steam for 5 minutes serve with sweet chilli and soy sauce for dipping.

Pictured here I cooked them in some broth and served with noodles and my favourite vegetables.


Wrapping dim sims requires a bit of practice, there are many videos on YouTube demonstrating this. 
Find a technique that works for you, or develop your own!


  1. I think I need to start shopping where you shop... ;)

  2. Love your picture of your dim sims & broth!
    I have been getting into Asian delicacies lately - experimenting with wontons & sticky bottom dumplings and now your dim sims have inspired me again!
    Thank you!
    Where do you get your dim sim skins/wrappers from?
    And what is the recipe for the broth you used - its looks light & fresh!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Its predominantly a beef consume / beef broth, Will try and post up recipe in the near future. I buy the wrappers from the asian grocer. Although some supermarkets stock them.
