Perhaps you have always had dimsums only in restaurants and avoided making them at home just because they sound complicated? But believe me, there are actually easy to make – follow the exact procedure explained here and try it once; I am sure you will master the act at one go and will soon be making the world’s best dimsums in your very own kitchen!

This is undoubtedly an innovative low calorie recipe – flour wrappers are filled with a healthy filling of broccoli and bean sprouts, and steamed to make an appetising snack. Bean sprout is one of my favourite ingredients, and I cannot think of a more stylish way to consume it. I have used plain flour as only whole wheat flour will not serve the purpose well.
