  • London restaurant Patara serves purple dumplings.
  • They are shaped by hand.
  • A butterfly pea flower extract makes the dough purple.
  • One portion costs £9.50 ($US12).

London restaurant Patara serves handcrafted purple dumplings. The dish, called Chor Muang, has a filling of caramelised chicken, herbs, and peanuts.

A butterfly pea flower extract makes the dough purple.

“The original recipe is from the opening of Patara more than 28 years ago in London,” said Executive Chef Viktor Chai. “The dumplings are different from other ones because of the handcraft and the lilac colour.”

The dish takes about four hours to complete, with the dough and the filling taking two hours each.

Patara makes about 50 per day. One portion costs £9.50 ($US12).
