dim sum wrappers (T&T)

the only wrappers I could find were for won tons - not what I wanted for the pork dumplings

I am looking for the yellow clear ones - anyone know the name of them and where I can pick them up

Looking for the clear sticky ones too - used for the shrimp dumplings, what are they called

the won ton wraps are for the potstickers - I can get won ton wrappers almost anywhere

thanks for everyones help

dim sum wrappers (store bought)

I made my own Sui Mai (pork dumplings) - Used the won ton wrappers

Wasn't until I finished steaming them - Noticed that they are not the right ones to use

What are the wrappers called for Sui Mai - thin and have a yellow color

I would like to make Ha Gau (shrimp dumplings) - What is the name of the thin white wrappers

I look forward and appreciate all your responses

Some are to runny - some to thick

I have ha eggs benny at a place on college west (should remember the name, but don't) - used Prosciutto and had mixed greens as well

they had home made chips with it - was a nice change from what I was used to @ Mars (greasy spoon)

Alize's may have the same kind of spin on their eggs benny - walk by there every weekend

Hope it's not rude looking at peoples plates - guess it a form of widow shopping/eating ha ha

I made them myself - made the mistake of using salted butter for the sauce, salt over powered the meal

Next time should be better - Yes, the quest to make the perfect eggs benny!

if I don't have a Wok can I just use a pot - as long as the steamers can sit on top of it

As this would be my first time using them - how to steam?

I understand bamboo steamers will sit on an open pot - how much water to use?

Steamers placed on pot before boiling starts or after - How long to steam basic pork and shrimp dim sum?
