Shumai | Shrimp & Pork Dumplings Recipe | Kanom Jeeb Dumpling – Hot Thai Kitchen!

This is a dim sum favourite for many of us! Originally a Chinese dish, these yummy little dumplings have become a solid part of the Thai food culture for a long time, and when we make them, we add our own Thai flare to them (yes, there are chilies involved!). A lot easier to make than you might think, and they can also be made in advance, refrigerate or freeze, and then steamed whenever you’re ready to serve!

    Thank you for watching!

  2. I completely forgot that The Hmong and Thai have so many words in common. We say candy the same way, as well as bathroom, the number zero, and a playing ball.

    Anyways, loving your recipes! I love seeing Hmong cuisine share some similarities between Lao and Thai cuisines in your videos!

  3. QUESTION: how do I reuse the corner scraps and extra wonton wrappers? Is there some way to smush the scraps altogether and reform into full wrappers? I tried with a couple, but it's pretty resistant to combining. 🙁 Too dry, maybe?

  4. You inspired me. I made them last weekend. Came out wonderful. My new go to recipe 😋. THANKS AGAIN 😊

  5. Found this recipe awhile back and this one is a keeper. When we have a family gathering, they always ask for this 😌

  6. I did not realize jicama is a veggi root. I grew upneating itbthinking it was a fruit. My mom use to squeeze lime over it and put chile powder and salt. Do the shumai in this recipe freeze well? If yes would that be before or after steaming?

  7. What if you don't have a steamer, can you cook it in a rice cooker with the steam basket?

  8. I made these and the wonton wrappers because I couldn’t find any pre-made. It was spectacular! The dipping sauce was not great. I don’t care for all that vinegar but everything else was wonderful!

  9. Thank you for the name explanations in your recipes! It's so useful and makes it so much easier to remember 🙏

  10. น่าทานที่สุดค่ะ❤️ that's looking so delicious I will have to cook it soon ka😊😍😘

  11. Instead of jicama I used canned water chestnuts I had on hands and it worked just as well. I can't find jicama where I live 🙁

  14. I loved to cook this, but as a Muslim girl from Indonesia I use the chicken to replace the pork which is haram in Muslim.
