Chef’s Tips

San choy bau can be flavoured with Kecap manis (sweet soy), sweet chilli, plum sauce or hot chilli sauce. The san choy bau filling maybe prepared several hours ahead of time and refrigerated until required.

This filling is also delicious in wontons or steamed dumplings.

Use the sauce in the red tray to flavour the mixture.
