Dim Sum
little plates of food
prepared with the thoughts of the one eating and
cooked with lots of patience and 
overflowing love

Not so much at a time
but in such small portions
that you keep wanting more after each serving

Among the many dishes
Fried Prawn Rolls 
is definitely one that many people love

I found this recipe in herfrozenwings blog:

250g large prawns (shelled, de-veined & cut into 3s)
1 tsp sugar
60g fish paste
2 water chestnut (peeled & chopped)
1/2 tsp corn flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chicken powder
a little pepper & sesame oil
spring onions, chopped 
1 large sheet dry soya bean curd skin, cut into 9cmX12cm
oil for deep frying

1) marinate prawn pieces with sugar, leave aside for 20min
2) add the rest of the ingredients & leave for at least 30min
3) wrap fillings in bean curd skin, seal with beaten egg
4) twist both ends to lock in the filling
5) deep fry until golden
6) serve hot, very crispy

Foochow people have their way of 
making paus

Jinau Pau
in Foochow dialect is Pillow Bun

This is popular in Sitiawan
they are usually sold out before the sun goes down
soft and fluffy
and it will not stick to your teeth

These jinau pau are filled with
red bean paste
ground peanuts,
both are just as good

If there are more layers of the filling
then it is called
ching aik koh
Of course the bun is very much taller

350g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp yeast
200g water, adjust accordingly
40g castor sugar
10g shortening/oil

200g red bean paste

1) combine all ingredients in bread machine
2) dough cycle 15min, and leave for 30min to rise
3) roll into 2 rectangle
4) place red bean paste on the dough & roll up like swiss roll
5) leave to rise 20-30min until double
6) steam from cold water for 20min
7) leave inside steamer for 5min before opening

I have replaced part of the water with blended pumpkin
to make these yellowish pillow pau
