Our Lazy Curry Fried Siomai Recipe will Change the Way You Eat Siomai Forever

March 16, 2015

I’m telling you now, you should know—this is one of the laziest recipes we’ve ever done on the website. I won’t tell you that we made the siomai from scratch, or that we toiled for an hour and a half just to get it done. This is a straightforward, no bullshit recipe that involves you making a trip to your nearest grocery, and buying some pre-made siomai that will find itself frying in a jacuzzi of burning hot oil with its wrapper turning shatteringly crisp, then laden with some of our curry sauce (whose base is also store-bought, by the way).

Yes, yes, call us whatever you want. But once you try this recipe, you sure as hell wouldn’t go back to just having your siomai with soy sauce and calamansi. You could say this is a sort-of nod to Wai Ying’s curry siomai, but we like how this fried meal can be made quick and no-frills. Have a cup or two of rice on a plate, dump this in, and squeeze with generous amounts of Kewpie. That’s it, and you’re good.

    By cube, do you mean one square of the four square curry block that comes in plastic and foil containers? I’m basing this on S&B Golden Curry because that’s one of the more popular ones, but if that’s not what you used, please share?

    Hi, may I ask where you can buy S&B Golden Curry? Thank you!
