How to do video 



Pan-fried, steamed, or boiled, these dumplings can be enjoyed in many situations. Make a whole bunch of them, store them in the freezer, throw them into curries, stir-fries, pan fry them or steam the possibilities are endless.




  • Meat options: 180g pork, chicken or beef mince
  • Vegan/Vegetarian: 180g of precooked mushrooms or 2 cups of crush supermarket frozen vegetables.
  • Vegetables: 1 leaf of wombok Chinese cabbage, chopped finely (can use 1 cup chopped cabbage) + 1 baby king oyster mushroom or button mushroom minced + 1 spring onion, minced + 1 clove of garlic, minced + 1 clove of ginger, minced 


  • 2 tsp soy sauce  + 1 tsp Shaoxing (Chinese rice wine)  + 1 tsp vegetable oil + ¼ tsp sesame oil + ¼ tsp salt + ¼ tsp sugar 


  • 1 tbsp soy + 1 tbsp black vinegar or just any vinegar + few drops of chilli oil


  • Add the flour into a small mixing bowl. Use your hand to make a small well or dip into the centre of the flour. Add the boiling water to the centre of the flour and use a chopstick or fork, mixing the flour and water until it begins to clump together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a work surface and make sure to scrape the inside of the bowl to get all the remaining bits of flour. Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes until the dough begins to become smooth and pliable. 
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rest for 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Place the mince in a bowl and mix in the seasoning. Mix well until the mince become sticky. Add in chopped cabbage, mushroom, spring onion, garlic and ginger. Rest on the side.
  • Using a knife, cut the dough into 24 equal pieces. 
  • Take each piece of cut dough and, using your index finger and them, lightly shape them into small cylinders or marshmallow-shaped pieces. 
  • When all 24 pieces have been shaped, use the heel of your hand, to squish/flatten each marshmallow shape into small round discs.
  • Dust your work surface generously with flour and use a rolling pin to roll the discs out into thin 1mm rounds.
  • Every time you make one forward roll with the rolling pin, turn the dumpling skin 45 degrees, repeating as your dough gets thinner and thinner. This equal turning should give your dumpling skin an even, round shape. Repeat this process 24 times.
  • Prepare a small bowl with a few tbsp of water. Taking one dumpling skin, wet the edges of the with a little water and place 2 tsp (about 10g) of filling into the centre of each dumpling skin.
  • For an easy shape, fold the dumpling skin in half and press both edges of the moistened skin together, pinching along the entire seam until the filling has been sealed within a ‘half-moon’ shape. Grasping the 2 corners of the dumpling skin, slowly bring the 2 edges together until 1 side overlaps the other, gently press together to seal. 
  • Repeat this process until you have used up all the filling. 
  • Place the dumplings in an oiled steamer basket and steam for 8-10 minutes or until the filling feels firm when gently squeezed.  • Use pan to fry the dumpling if you wish so.
  • Mix the dipping sauce and enjoy!
