This is how you make it

1
Start by cleaning and removing the seeds from the snack peppers, habanadas and chilli pepper, then cut them into small pieces. Finely chop the ginger, onion and garlic.

2
Heat a pan with a little olive oil and then add the onion, garlic, habanada and snack peppers. Put this on high heat for 5 minutes, then add the salt, sugar and vinegar. Mix well and add 150 water and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and simmer for 10 minutes.

3
Grind this mixture into a thick sauce in a blender or food processor. Taste it and add salt and pepper to taste. Place the thick sauce in the fridge for about 2 hours.

4
Take a wonton sheet and place it in your hand. Fill the sheet with 1 large tablespoon of the filling. Close the dough with a fork or your fingers. There are several videos on the internet for different ways of folding the dim sum.

5
Heat a small pan of water and let the water boil. Add a little salt and pepper to the water. Take a steamer basket/sieve and cover the bottom with baking paper, to prevent the dimsum from sticking to the bottom and opening when you take it out.

6
Place the steamer basket with the dim sum on the pan and steam for about 15 minutes. Serve the bites with soy sauce for dipping.

Tip

1
For a spicy variant, substitute habaneros for habanada chillies!
