How to make it

  • Wash rice under cold running water until water runs clear, then soak in warm water for 30 minutes.
  • Drain the rice thoroughly, then place in a heavy medium pot with 1 1/4 cups water. Bring to a boil and let boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Alternatively, cook the rice in a rice cooker.
  • Heat the oil in a wok over high heat. Toss in the pork, mushrooms, and shrimp and stir-fry until the color of the pork changes, breaking up the pork with a spatula so there are no lumps or clumps. Add the soy sauce, wine, sugar, salt, and pepper and stir-fry briefly. Stir in the cooked rice and the scallions and mix well. Remove from the heat and divide between two medium bowls.
  • If using wonton skins, trim to a circular shape. Place a small bowl of water (for moistening your fingers as you shape the dumplings) and a large lightly oiled plate by your work surface. Lightly oil one or two 10-inch or larger steamers.
  • To shape the dumplings, place 1 generous tablespoon filling in the center of a wrapper skin or wonton and then with moistened fingers, pull the edges up around the filling and pinch just at the top of the filling to make a pleated "neck" with a "frill" of wrapper above. Repeat to make more dumplings. As you complete each dumpling, place it on the lightly oiled plate and push down gently to flatten to bottom.
  • When you have made 15 to 20 dumplings, transfer them to a steamer. In a large wok or pot, bring water for steaming to a boil. Place the steamer over boiling water (the water should be no higher than 1/2-inch below the steamer), cover, and steam the dumplings for 6 minutes.
  • Continue to shape the remaining dumplings while the first batch cooks, then cook the remaining dumplings.
  • Mix together the dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Serve the dumplings hot or at room temperature, either from the steamers or on plates. Accompany with the dipping sauce, served in one or two small bowls.
