How to make it

  • Place all filling ingredients in a bowl and mix well, by hand until the ingredients form a smooth and rather firm stuffing. This will take about 2 minutes.
  • Dough: Measure both starches and salt into a small mixing bowl.
  • Quickly pour the boiling water into the starches while stirring with chopsticks until you get a partially cooked dough. Do not overwork the dough.
  • Quickly add the lard in little pinches and then knead until smooth. When the dough is smooth, after about 2 minutes' kneading, cover it with the mixing bowl and allow it to rest for 15 minutes before shaping. To shape the dumplings, pull just a bit more than 1 tsp of dough from the ball.
  • Keep the remainder of the dough covered with the bowl.
  • Roll the small amount into a ball and place onto a floured marble board. Roll out into a circle about 3 inches in diameter.
  • Place 1 t of the shrimp filling in the center of the circle of dough and fold over into a half-moon. Use a tiny bit of water for sealing the edges. Be sure to gently press out all the air.
  • If you wish, you can form little pleats in the dough for added decoration. Steam on an oiled bamboo steaming rack for 12 minutes
  • The soup is easy to make add a cube of chicken or anchovies tasting cube in a pot fill with 250ml water and add a bit of choy sim and pepper to taste
  • make 40 dumplings
