Dumplings come in all shapes and sizes, but have you ever seen any dumplings cuter than those made by Taipei-based self-taught cook Minmin Chang?
The Taiwanese woman took social media by storm recently after posting photos of her adorable fish-shaped dumplings, along with detailed instructions on how to make your own.
Filled with a mixture of minced pork, shrimp, water chestnut, garlic and cilantro, these realistic-looking dumplings are made by hand using simple tools like a straw, a chopstick, and a pair of scissors.
But first, the food artist prepares the dough, leaving it under a wet cloth for 10 minutes. She then flattens it with the blade of a large knife and applies food coloring.
However, the most impressive thing is the cute fish look even better after being boiled or steamed.
Minmin Chang’s original Facebook post had gotten almost 40,000 likes, over 8,000 comments, and is still being shared on various social networks.
As you can imagine, most people are amazed of her skills, and some are desperate to get a clear recipe, so they can replicate the treats by themselves. But, sadly, the automatic translation doesn’t reveal too much about the cute dumplings…
