Siomai (sometimes seen as Shomay) in Indonesia is pronounced the same way as its sisters and is usually a wonton wrapper, stuffed with filling and steamed. It is served also with steamed potatoes, tofu, hard boiled eggs, and is topped with sweet soy sauce (Kecap) and peanut sauce. This variant is less common in western countries
There are hundreds of siomai recipes going around the internet. For all of you Indonesians, I am sure you already know the recipe by heart, therefore I won’t post it here. However the special peanut sauce is adopted from my my dear friend Kiky Olson’s recipe – using fried garlic, roasted candlenuts and steamed kumara (sweet potato). Guaranteed second helping! Yummie…..
Just experimenting with different presentation for siomai.
