A date with dim sum

The Dim Sum Festival is on at Uppal's Orchid till May 22


Uppal's Orchid is celebrating Dim Sum Festival this week. Chef Yan Jun has been specially flown in from Beijing. He puts his culinary skills and expertise to dish out Dim sum treats, which are served in the traditional style. Dim, a Cantonese word means `dot-hearts' or small treats that touch the heart. Dim sums are little dough dumplings.

They are filled with vegetables, different kinds of meat, shrimps, and other small fillings, savoury or sweet, before being served.

The dishes are served in bamboo vaporisation bowls, which are placed over a steam trolley.

The festival has a special menu with a wide assortment of vegetarian and non-vegetarian Dim sums. Non-vegetarian menu includes Chinese mushroom gouty, steamed chicken and celery, chicken shia mai, etc whereas in the vegetable one can enjoy sweet-corn pancake braised Chinese mushrooms with a blend of ginger and onion. In addition, there is steamed tofu made out of soya milk, which is very good for health. "It is very light, having less calories, good for health and quite popular among health freaks," says Master chef Yan Jun. Besides, people get the chance to enjoy the very refreshing jasmine flavoured tea with a touch of purity. It is a tea without sugar and milk.
