The Story of Jiaozi

As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!

饺子 . Jiaozi . Dumplings 

I have always loved eating “Jiaozi“, or dumplings.. Even before I got to know Kai Kai (Alhamdulillah, we are married now), I often find myself ordering a big bowl of it whenever I get the chance to eat at Chinese Muslim restaurants.

However, there had been several occasions whereby I wasn’t able to eat the dumplings simply because the restaurants ran out of it. As a result, I wasn’t able to satisfy my cravings.

I guess it came to the point when I started to Google ways to make my own dumplings. I experimented the different types of filling, learnt how to fold it into various shapes. and tried several cooking methods. From using pre-made dumpling wrappers bought from the supermarket, I eventually graduated to make my own dumpling wrappers.

Fast forward, now that we are in the Chinese Muslim food business, it makes all the more sense to include one of my most favorite food in our menu. Making dumplings take hard work, especially if I make the dumplings shaped like the ones Kai Kai eats at his hometown. So for now, we are only offering the basic shape dumplings – cooked and frozen options. If Allah permits, we can offer other shapes for custom orders.

Have you tried our dumplings yet?
