“The dried mushrooms give this dish a distinctly strong aroma. Even if it seems so at first glance, this dish is not vegetarian. Bonito flakes and Thanh Ha Sauce add to the taste here, so leave these ingredients out to make it a dish suitable to vegetarians.”

    Finely chop the scallions and add most of them to a food processor with the spiced tofu, sesame seeds, remaining ginger, starch, remaining fish sauce, and salt. Pulse together until well combined. Place dumpling wrappers out and brush the whole edge with your finger and a bit of water. Add some of the tofu mixture to the middle of the dumpling wrapper and fold it together. Transfer the dumplings to a steamer basket lined with baking paper and steam for approx. 10 min.
