Many of us love the dumplings and the dipping sauce that is served with it. Today I am sharing a very quick , delicious and flavorful Vegetarian Dumpling Sauce recipe.It can be whipped in just 10 minutes with easily available ingredients in your pantry. I like the dumpling sauce more than the dumplings. Dumplings are so versatile and the stuffing can be curated as per your preference. They are highly addictive .

Some Info about Dumpling and Dumpling Sauce:

  • Dumplings may be prepared using a variety of methods, including baking, boiling, frying, simmering or steaming and are found in many world cuisines.
  • Stuffing can range from Vegetables , Tofu , Mushrooms, seafood and meat.
  • There are both sweet and savory dumplings.
  • Components of a good dumpling sauce are very simple, and it comes down to a balance of different flavors: salty, sweet, spicy, and a little bit of tang.
  • Dumpling sauce recipes vary .

Ingredients for Vegetarian Dumpling Sauce:

  • Onion: I have used red onion. You can use White onion in case you cannot find red one.
  • Garlic: Garlic adds a nice flavor to the dumpling sauce.
  • Chilli Flakes: Chilli flakes used here is mildly spicy. You can increase or decrease the quantity as per your spice tolerance.
  • Sesame Oil: Sesame oil gives you a nice nutty flavor to the dip. Compliments very well with the dumpling.
  • Spring onion: Spring Onion is used to garnish . Do not add while cooking. Garnish once the sauce is at room temperature.
  • Soya Sauce: I have used dark soya sauce. You can use light soya sauce as well.
  • Chilli Sauce: Chilli sauce enhances the thickness of the sauce along with the spice kick.
  • Toasted Sesame: I love the flavors imparted by toasted Sesame when garnished.
