Ha Gao (Steamed shrimp dumplings) Dim Sum 蝦餃

Ha Gao are probably the most famous and popular dim sum together with Siu Mai. Here I have made a video about how to make Ha Gao, you will learn to make the wrapper, the filling and how to steam it. I love the taste and I think it is so cool that in the future all of us can make these at home coz probably not all of us live learn a dim sum restaurant. Please also check out my Siu Mai video. All the best!

  5. Hello Mrs. Wong,
    Thank you for posting all of these delicious recipes ! I am from San Francisco and I am now living in Italy. I miss so many of these dishes from my childhood. I tried the siu mai and bok tong goh recipes with much success. The ha gao wrapper was a huge challenge. When I first added the 100 ml of water it looked too watery like it would never make a dough, so I panicked and added more wheat starch. The dough then came together, but I had a very difficult time rolling it thin. It stuck to everything and broke. When cooked it was quite hard, probably because it was thick. Any advice?

      Hi Jeanette, thank you for trying my recipes. The ha gao is 60 grams wheat starch, 25 grams tapioca flour, a pinch of salt, 1 tsp oil, 100 ml boiling water. Is it the same like your my dear ? Please check it out again. Thank you ^^

      • Hello Maria,
        thank you for answering. Yes, I did weigh everything and I had the right ingredients, it is obviously the experience which is missing. I will definitely try again and report back. I love Ha gao so and want to learn to make them at home.

        • Hello again! I tried your recipe again today, I was very careful with measuring all ingredients. I think that my Wheat starch might be older and drier. I added a little more water to the dough and the result was much, much better. I still had some trouble with the dough breaking rather than making the nice pleats that you have on your ha gao- I will continue trying, hoping that practice makes perfect. I thank you once more! For a moment it felt like I was back home again enjoying a dimsum lunch.
          I look forward to trying many more of your recipes!

            Hi Jeanette, thank you for trying my recipe. The important step for this recipe is the wheat starch use boiling to cook. Have a lovely day ^^
