Step 3Part 2

Shape your hand like an "O", sit the wrapper on it, and add two tablespoons of filling in the centre.

Step 3Part 3

Then, fold the wrapper edges, pinching them between your thumb and index finger. Don't seal the dumpling, but leave the centre open.

Step 4

Blitz a carrot in a blender and use it to top each dumpling instead of using the traditional fish roe.

Step 5

Line a bamboo basket with baking paper, put in the dumplings, and set the basket on a pot of boiling water. Steam the shumai for 10 minutes until soft and glossy and serve them warm.
