How to make it
- Finely mince the shrimp.
- Combine the egg white and cornstarch.
- Mix all the filling ingredients together and refrigerate while preparing the dough.
- Dumpling Dough:
- Combine the wheat starch and the potato starch in a mixing bowl. Stir in the salt, then gradually add the boiling water while stirring. Wait 5 minutes until the dough has cooled a bit.
- While it is still warm mix in the lard a tiny bit at a time.
- Knead the dough until it is smooth and the lard is mixed in.
- Let the dough rest for at least 15 minutes.
- To prepare the wrappers:
- Lay a large piece of wax paper on countertop.
- Take a heaping teaspoon of dough (approximately a 1-inch ball), roll into a ball and flatten.
- Lay the dough out on the wax paper and roll out until approximately three inches in diameter.
- Cover the wrappers to keep from drying out while preparing the remaining dough.
- Prepare the Dumplings:
- Take a level teaspoon of filling and place in the middle of the wrapper.
- Spread so that it is not too thick in the middle or the wrapper may break.
- Gently fold the wrapper over the filling.
- Pleat the edges to seal.
- Continue with the remainder of the dumplings.
- To Cook:
- Steam the dumplings over boiling water in a bamboo steamer (can be purchased at Chinese grocery) until they are transparent, between 3 to 5 minutes.
- Serve hot with chili oil dipping sauce
