Meat Vegetables ( Kanoom Tien Pa Yook )


A little silliness today, these are mince filled dumplings made to look like vegetables, front left is an aubergine, front right a beetroot, at the top is a tomato and a cauliflower. Only simple shapes can be made, since the dough won't hold complex patterning.

Ingredients for 7 Pieces
50 gms Pork Mince (better to mince your own)
2 Garlic Cloves
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Coriander Root
1 Tablespoon Oil
100 gms Yellow Bean ( Soaked for 8 hours or more)
1 Tablespoon Chopped Chives
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Sugar

Ingredients For Dough
150 Sticky Rice Flour
1 Teaspoon Palm Sugar
75 ml Warm water
1 Tablespoon Oil
Food Colouring

1. Steam the soaked yellow beans for 10-15 minutes until cooked. Add salt and sugar. Pound them in a Thai mortar to break up the beans and set aside.
2. Pound the pepper, garlic and coriander root in a Thai mortar. Mix with the pork and fry in a little oil until cooked.
3. Mix in the yellow bean and roll into 7-8 balls.
4. To make the dough, mix the sticky rice flour, palm sugar, warm water, and mix until smooth. Add the oil and mix with your finger until it's smooth. Split the mixture into balls, 1 for each ball of filling.
5. This is where the art comes in, you can colour parts of the dough to make the vegetable designs.
6. Flatten each ball of dough, place a ball of filling in the center, fold up the dough to enclose the filling, roll the ball around in your hands to smooth it off.
7. Place the ball on lightly greased greaseproof paper squares, and steam for 10 minutes until the outer dough is cooked.
