One of the best examples of Indo-Chinese fusion cooking, the Pan-Fried Dumplings features steamed dumplings pan-fried in a spicy sauce.

Each dumpling is a classic piece, with a spicy, aromatic and crunchy filling of crisp veggies flavoured with garlic et al.

These dumplings are steamed and then sautéed with a tongue-tickling sauce, yielding a dish that has a mind-boggling mix of flavours and textures.

You can balance the spice level according to your taste. Also, try to consume it immediately before the pan-fried dumplings begin to get chewy. This recipe is slightly elaborate but definitely a must-try!
