Bubble Dumplings! (Sakoo Sai Moo)
They look like little bundles of frog eggs. Okay, don't think about that if you're going to try these. They are delightfully soft, chewy, and bursting with contrasting flavors and textures in that Thai way. They're delicious wrapped in lettuce leaves and dipped in a little soy sauce.
What surprised me most about this recipe was the fact that, although it said I should end up with 24 dumplings, I made 36 with filling to spare. I even made them bigger than the recipe described. Normally, with this book, it goes the other way - I try my hardest and still fall about 10 dumplings short of the total. Whatever the case, I was tempted to eat all of them myself.
