A delectable chive filling is wrapped inside wonton wrappers. Then, they are steamed until translucent and mouthwatering. It’s super easy and shockingly delicious! Let’s get started with Steamed Chive Dumplings!


Serving: 12
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

For the steamed dumplings:
12 wonton wrappers
1 1/2 cups Chinese chives
3 tablespoons carrots, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
Pinch of salt
Pinch white pepper

For the scrambled eggs:
1 tablespoon oil
3 large eggs
Pinch of salt

For the dipping sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Chinkiang vinegar, or other types of vinegar
1 tablespoon chili oil


To prepare the eggs:
  • In a bowl, crack in the eggs and add the salt. Whisk.
  • In a pan over medium heat, pour in the oil and the eggs. Scramble into small pieces and completely cooked through. Cool to room temperature.
To prepare the filling:
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the Chinese chives, carrots, and sesame oil. Mix together. (The sesame oil will prevent the chives and carrots from releasing too much liquid. You could also replace it with other cooking oil.)
  • Then, followed by the scrambled eggs, oyster sauce, salt, and white pepper. Combine.
To assemble:
  • Lay a wonton wrapper flat. (You could use both round or square wonton wrappers. Dumpling wrappers will do as well.)
  • Brush some water around the edges. Place about a tablespoon of the filling in the center. Gather all the corners and edges. Pinch and seal together. Do the same with the rest.
To steam:
  • Place the chive dumplings on a bamboo steamer.
  • In a large steamer over high heat, bring water to a boil. Transfer the bamboo steamer inside. Cover the lid and steam until completely cooked through for about 6 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the bamboo steamer.
To serve:
  • In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, Chinkiang vinegar (or other types of vinegar), and chili oil.
  • Serve the chive dumplings with the dipping sauce and enjoy!

New Tang Dynasty Television recently hosted the Miss NTD Pageant. It inspires people to rediscover beauty. They put a focus on the inner beauty: morality, righteousness, propriety, benevolence, and faithfulness. I totally agree that the inner beauty is the most important. Just like these little chive dumplings, beautiful and tasty on both the inside and outside!
