Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it’s associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease

Method

For this recipe, you will need 300 g cooked chicken.

Halve and deseed the chillies, trim and halve the spring onions, then very finely slice the chillies and spring onions lengthways and place into a bowl of iced water until they curl. Put to one side.

Shred the cooked chicken into a bowl. Finely slice the coriander (stalks and all) and add to the bowl, then mix in the grated ginger, barbecue sauce and a good squeeze of lime juice, then set aside.

Place the flour, coconut milk or semi-skimmed milk and a good pinch salt into a food processor, then pulse a few times until you have a sticky dough. Transfer to a flour-dusted work surface and shape into a long sausage, adding a little more flour if it’s too sticky. Cut into 16 equal-sized pieces, then flatten or roll each into circles (roughly ½ cm thick).

Equally divide the chicken mixture between each of the 16 dough circles (you’ll need roughly 1 heaped teaspoon of chicken per circle), making sure to leave a 2cm gap around the edges. Pull and fold the sides over the filling, pinching the edges together to seal. Place the dim sum balls, upside-down in double-layered, lightly greased muffin cases and divide between two bamboo steamer baskets.

Place a wok on a high heat and fill with 2cm worth of boiling water. Once boiling, place the baskets on top of the wok and cover with a lid. Steam for 12 minutes or until light, fluffy and cooked through.

Drain and scatter over the spring onions and chillies, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve with a bowl of lime-spiked hoisin sauce for dipping.
