~Shiro introduces an exclusive variety of Dumplings from June 10 – July 28, 2015~

Mumbai, June 2015: 1800 years ago, Zhang Zhongjing, a ‘Medicine Saint’ from the Han Dynasty in China, wrapped mutton, chili and some warming medicinal herbs in some  dough. He then boiled this little parcel- possibly the world’s first dumpling- and handed the same to the poor suffering in the bitter, winter cold. Little did Zhongjing know that this small gesture of kindness would make the simple dumpling one of the universes most popular dishes!

From the Han of yore to the Shiro of the now-and the spanking new Shiro Collection: Dim Sum 2015 starts on June 10 -it’s a long journey, but what a culmination! Dream of bamboo baskets transported in a cloud of steam to your table. Pause and then unravel the jewels within-Oyster Chicken and Sticky Rice Sui Mai (marinated chicken and shitake mushrooms tossed with sticky rice, steamed in a wonton wrapper), heavenly Phoenix Eye Dumpling (rich, classic prawn dumpling seasoned with chilies and fish sauce or the classic Har Gua (prawns marinated & steamed inside a translucent wrapper). For vegetarians, it’s entering a veggie Shangri-La; the Shanghai Mushroom Dumpling with three kinds of mushrooms and a sharp garlic oil or the extraordinary Shen Jian Bao (a pan fried dumpling of assorted mushroom and delicate, almost sweet-tasting leeks or the evocatively named Chi Chow Style Dumpling packing a mouthful of wickedness with earthy asparagus, bell peppers, slivers of perky carrot, peanuts and crunchy, nutty water chestnuts. The Shiro Collection is a knockout with almost 40 styles of dumplings under one roof- choosing from this could put Chinese Torture to shame!
