Dumplings have become popular across the world.
More and more people are experimenting with new and exciting flavours, combining them together to create entirely unique dumplings that are innovative in both taste and texture.
I love dumplings, I can't deny that I'm also one of the dumpling fans. :)
Dumplings are easy to prepare, I usually prefer pan-fried dumplings, it's always a great and refreshing tailgate bites and finger foods to have at anytime.
Not to surprise, I can eat at least 10-15 dumplings just by myself. #lol
Dumplings can be sweet or savory, and can be prepared with whatever ingredients and recipes.
For instance, Malaysia has just launched the first plant-based dumpling outlet that collaborated by the new specialized plant-based meat dumpling franchise Dumpling Kings and plant-based meats foodtech company Phuture Daging.

So excited to have the chance to try the four different dumpling flavours from Dumpling Kings' menu; spicy mala, kimchi, chives, and mushroom cabbage that served in 2 preparation styles, pan-fried and boiled options.

Pan-fried Mushroom Cabbage Dumplings

All dumplings are made with a mixture of plant-based meat and vegetables. 
This mix is added to the flattened dough which handmade fresh by authentic dumpling chefs before the ingredients are meticulously sealed in. 
That way, Dumpling Kings maintains the original flavour of chives dumplings without compromising on taste and texture even while using plant-based meat.

Mushroom Cabbage Dumplings

Phuture Daging’s plant-based meats are freshly made, sourced from local farms and processed in compliance with halal practices. 
They use non-GMO soy, which is cholesterol-free with low calories and high protein content. 
There is also no added hormones or antibiotics, it is Muslim, Buddist, vegan and vegetarian-friendly in addition to being cruelty-free.

Pan fried SPicy Mala Dumplings

The pan-grilled dumplings are juicy on the inside, while staying crispy and golden brown on the outside thanks to a delicate balance between pan-frying and steaming.
Dumplings are first pan-grilled on high heat until crispy brown on the bottom. 

Spicy Mala Dumplings in Soup

A splash of water is added, and the pan is covered quickly to steam the dumplings. 
This results in a mix of textures, with dumplings being crispy at the bottom and soft at the top while the insides remain juicy. 

Pan-fried Kimchi Dumplings

All different flavours of dumplings are served steaming hot with Dumpling Kings’ signature ginger soy sauce and vinegar as well as a splash of chili oil.

These plant-based dumplings are a great treat for everyone!
Not only they are tasty, the dumplings are also healthy, satisfying and suitable for all ages.
I enjoyed every single dumpling on my plate, but if you asked me what's my most favourite, my choices are the kimchi and mushroom cabbage.
The kimchi has a subtle spice kick and the mushroom cabbage making them taste like smoldering meatloaf.
