Gluten Free Fried Pork Dumplings are an amazing appetizer. But, to get there you need a good gluten free won ton recipe. Well here you have it. The important thing when making these is that you roll the won ton wrapper thin enough. They roll out pretty easily between two pieces of parchment, but if you have a pasta maker, you’re golden.
Have you ever been to a good Dim Sum restaurant? Smiling ladies and gentlemen wheel their carts around loaded with small bites of Cantonese snacks. Things like steamed and fried dumplings, mini spring rolls, spare ribs and egg custard tarts to name a few. With a nod or wave of your hand, they deliver the treat to your table, mark it on your running itemized bill and move on to the next table.
I love this experience. I get to eat a variety of food in small bites while sipping tea and share it with my table of friends or family. It’s so exciting to choose the next item, evaluate, critique and enjoy. And, if I love something, I’m not too proud to order it again.
Seems that the term Dim Sum literally means ‘point to the heart.’ Not sure how that truly relates to these lovely Cantonese snacks, although I’ve seen one translation that says those two words together mean snack or light pastry. Nonetheless, one of my favorite Dim Sum offerings are steamed or fried dumplings. There are a lot of dishes that use rice paper, but dumplings are usually made with won ton wrappers and the won tons at the store contain wheat flour, which means I can’t have them.
And, darn it, I have a craving for these RIGHT NOW. Let’s see what I can come up with that serves as a gluten free won ton so we can enjoy these Gluten Free Fried Pork Dumplings.
Until next time…
