Xiao Long Bao Soup Dumplings – A New Creative Way of Making Soup Dumpling : The Agar-Agar Solution!

I love Xiao Long Bao dumplings. When you eat them, you discover some hot soup and stuffing inside.
I was wondering how it was possible to wrap soup and stuffing inside these dumplings? A solution had to be found to make the soup solid to wrap it. Then when steaming, with heat, it would become liquid again. A good solution is to use agar-agar, a natural gelling agent with a neutral taste made from seaweed.

  7. What a wonderful idea. It’s a lot of work but I really like it and think about try that out one day

    If you do a soup with a lot of bones meat and skin, than it should gel by itself. Just keep it cool enough
