Gluten Free shrimp dumplings

Gluten Free shrimp dumplings

Gluten Free shrimp dumplings: I miss gluten sometimes, and the one thing i miss the most is this. I louve dumplings, i tried making them earlier too and i got very close with the recipe when i made them with rice paper sheets, but then i still missed the ‘maida’ flavour so yesterday i experimented again and made these with tapioca flour and GF all purpose flour. The result was awesome, i was surprised to see that how similar these were to the regular gluten momos/dumplings.

If you miss momos just like me, then you have to try this recipe TODAY. And yes you can thank me later 🙂



Makes: 12-15 dumplings

For the dough:

Tapioca Flour: 1 cup

GF all purpose flour: 1 cup

Salt: 1 tsp

Olive oil: 2 tbsp

Xanthan gum: 1 1/2 tsp

Water: 12-15 tbsp


For the filling:

Prawns (medium): 500 gms (Deshelled, cleaned, washed properly)

Spring onions: 2-3 cleaned and finely chopped

GF Soy sauce: 1 tbsp (If you don’t have the GF soy sauce, you can skip this)

Dry chilli flakes: to taste

Salt: to taste


For pan frying the prawns:

Olive oil: 1/2 tbp


To steam:

Steamer or idli maker steamer



Step 1: Make the dough- just like how you knead the dough to make chapati/pooris. Don’t make the dough too soft though. Cover it with a cling film, else the dough gets dry too quickly. Keep the dough covered.

Step 2: Pan fry the prawns, then chop them thinly for the filling.

Step 3: In a bowl, mix the chopped prawns, chopped spring onion, soy sauce, salt, chilli flakes together.

Step 4: Make small poori sized circular sheets with help of a rolling pin. Brush them with a few drops of olive oil so that the sheets don’t get too dry.

Step 5: Place a tbsp of filling in the center of each sheet and make them into small dumpling like packet. Choose the shape you like. I out the filling at the center then i folded the sheet/wrapper end together over center of filling and pinched them tight so that they stick to each other. Did the same with the other two sides too.

Step 6: On the steamer, brush a bit of olive oil and place the dumplings to steam. Since the prawn is already cooked, the dumplings will take 10-12 minutes to get fully done.

Step 7: Enjoy with your favourite dipping sauce.
