These dumplings are so delicious that you will eat them all and only realise it when there are none left so make plenty!
  • Filling Ingredients
  • 200g Ground Chicken
  • 100g Cabbage – finely shredded
  • 1 Onion – finely chopped
  • several chives – chopped
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • small knob ginger – grated
  • Marinade Ingredients
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbs cooking sake
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs oyster sauce
  • 2 Tbs potato starch (or cornflour if thats all you have in the cupboard)
  • pepper
  • 40 round dumpling skins
  • grape seed oil
  • boiling water
  1. – Prepare all the filling ingredients and combine in a non reactive bowl.
  2. – Combine all the marinade ingredients and pour over the filling.  Use your hands to mix well together.
  3. – Take a teaspoon full of the mixture and place in the centre of a wrapper.  Wet your fingers and run around the outside rim of the circle.  Fold into a half moon shape and pinch together – you can keep them simple or you can pleat one side against the other.
  4. – Once you have all the dumpling mixture wrapped then you can freeze them or store them in the fridge or cook them straight away!
To Cook:
  1. – Heat some grapeseed oil in a frypan with a decent rim.
  2. – Once the oil is hot, gently put rows of dumplings into the oil to caramelise their bases.  This will take around 2 minutes.
  3. – Once your dumplings are coloured underneath, carefully pour enough boiling water into the frypan to come up to about half way.  The dumplings will ‘steam’ in this water.
  4. – Cover the pan and allow to steam for around 3 minutes.  You can check one dumpling to make sure that the filling is cooked through.
These need to be served immediately – and they may not stay on the serving platter for long!![br]Great with soy sauce, chopped chilli and coriander.
