Also known as dim siem in the Cantonese dialect, these open-faced dumplings are made with a hot-water dough. The flat wrappers are available in Chinese grocery stores, but they are easy to make at home and are far superior to the commercial ones. The Shao Mai are delectable appetizers. You may make them in advance; well covered, they will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.
