Jiǔcài Hézi (韭菜盒子, lit: garlic chives small box) is a type of Chinese savory pocket pie, originated from Shandong, China. It is a traditional food in Shandong Peninsula for celebrating the Chinese New Year.

Description[edit]

Its dough is made from flour and water, with leavened and unleavened varieties. The stuffing typically includes chopped garlic chives, scrambled eggs,[1] sauteed mini-shrimp and cellophane noodles. There is also a variety with minced meat as stuffing.[2] The stuffing will be put in the middle of a flat dough, and then folded into half-moon shape. The finished turnover is usually pan-fried instead of baked in the oven like a turnover, and is served with black rice vinegar and sesame oil mixture as dip.
