Chicken Flower Dumplings




About: Mom of 2 kids, Food Blogger, Foodie :)

These Chicken Flower Dumplings are made using minced chicken balls, which is coated with generous amount of rice and then steam it. Simple isn't it!? when I see the contest title, this is the first recipe which came to my mind, because it exactly looks like a bunch of flowers. You can make it in under 30 minutes (excluded rice soaking time) . For this Mother's day, Instead of real flowers, treat your mom (or treat yourself) with this beautiful flowers :)

Step 1: Ingredients

1 lb Minced chicken

1/2 cup long grain rice (Basmathi rice) , wash and soak it in water for about an hour

1 tbsp ginger, finely chopped

1 tbsp garlic, finely chopped

1 tsp soy sauce

1 green chilli, chopped

1/2 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp garam masala

1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

salt as required

Step 2: How to Make Spicy Chicken Balls

Take minced chicken in a bowl, add soy sauce, ginger, garlic, chilli, cilantro, red chilli powder, garam masala, salt.

Combine altogether.

Grease your palm with little oil (do not apply too much oil, then rice wont coat on it).

Take a small portion from minced chicken mixture and roll it to a ball.

Repeat the same for rest of the minced chicken.

Step 3: Coat With Rice

Once it soaked for an hour, drain water and keep it on a plate.

Roll the minced chicken balls on rice, just make sure it is coated well.

Step 4: Steam the Chicken Balls

Steam the rice balls for 10 to 15 minutes on medium flame.

Step 5: Plate It!

I kept some curry leaves (you can use any greens) on a plate and then arranged chicken balls like bouquet flowers.

I've used hot sauce for bow.

Please try these dumplings, I am sure you will love these beauties.

    Beautiful presentation!

    Do you ever check the internal temp with a probe thermometer?

    Thanks for sharing.

    No, I haven't used one. I checked manually whether it is cooked or not.
