Usually, “fusion food” is a worrying term for me. However, having come across the cheeseburger dumpling, it seemed like a dongsi recipe that could work well, so we tried making them at home.
very finely chopped onions
very finely chopped and pressed dill pickles
shredded and pressed lettuce
a spoon full of tomato ketchup
well-kneaded Jiaozi dough (see my traditional recipe here)
I have to say, it felt very strange, with them looking like eastern food, but tasting so western! I think if I were making them again, I would fry them rather than boil.
