A “Dimsumptuous” time!

On Friday the 2nd of August a dim sum making workshop and lunch was organized for the Gurgaon Moms group at the Dimsum Bros. restaurant in Ambience Mall. Twenty- four of us eager beavers landed up at this well designed, warm and rather cosy establishment.   Once introductions were over and pleasantries exchanged, we got down to business rather quickly.

Now I know how those top chefs feel with their sous chefs running around and getting the work done! We were introduced to the owner of the restaurant, Ajay Saini, who described dim sums as little parcels of deliciousness and very clearly stated that momos are a far cry from these Chinese delicacies! Momos are the poor cousins, if you will. So do yourself a favour and never call dim sums, momos. Saying “dumplings” is usually an acceptable alternative! Chefs Michael quickly started rolling out the small balls of white flour dough into mini chappattis. They used a rolling pin very similar to a “dhandiya” stick, to roll out tiny, circle-shaped flour sheets. One of the ladies aptly remarked “We could break into a celebratory dance after we learn how to make dim sums” . Needless to say their speed at...
