These are healthy and plump. They are easily made in the microwave and can even be served to toddlers.
I wanted to make easy and healthy shumai dumplings using only a small amount of meat. So I used mostly tofu and lettuce for the skins.
If you don't thoroughly dry off the moisture from the lettuce and the tofu, they will become soggy!!1 tablespoon of katakuriko makes these quite plump.Adjust the cooking time based on your microwave.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
