Chinese  Dumplings


4 people


50 minutes



– 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 pinch salt – 3/4 cup warm water (over 43°C/ 110°F) FILLING – 1/2 pound (0.25kg) ground pork – 1 cup canned sweet corn, drained – 6 medium-size shrimp, chopped (6 oz after peeling) – 1 egg (2 oz or 60 g without shell) – 2 cloves garlic, minced – 1 teaspoon ginger, minced – 1 tablespoon oyster sauce – 1 tablespoon sesame oil – 1 tablespoon Chinese ShaoXing rice wine – 1 tablespoon soy sauce DIPPING SAUCE – Chinese black vinegar – chili oil

Step 1

Prepare the dumpling wrapper. Add flour, salt and water in a mixing bowl, combine well with your hand until a rough dough forms. Wrap the dough in a plastic bag and let it rest for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Step 2

 Remove the plastic bag and knead the dough for 5 minutes until smooth. Then, put it in the plastic bag again and rest for another 10 minutes.

Step 3

Place the dough on the floured counter and divide it into two equal portions. Roll each of them into cylinders (about 12 inches in length). Cut the dough into 15 equal pieces (about 1/4 inch in length for each).

Step 4

Generously sprinkle flour over the dough, and use a rolling pin to flatten each of them into a round shape about 3 inches in diameter. Set them aside with plastic wrap covered.

Step 5

Prepare the filling. Add ground pork, sweet corn, chopped shrimp, egg, garlic, ginger, and filling seasonings in a large bowl. Stir to combine well. Set it aside.

Step 6

Assemble the dumplings. Put a small spoonful of filling on the center of the wrapper, and fold it in half. Pinch the top with two fingers, and push two ends to the center to make even pleating on the back. Pinch the seams to seal. Repeat until you use up all the ingredients.

Step 7

Bring a pot of water to boil. Drop the dumplings in the boiling water. And cook the dumplings for 5 minutes without the lid. Once the dumplings start to float, cook for another 2 minutes then remove them using a strainer.

Step 8

Serve them immediately with dipping sauce (Mix 1 tablespoon of Chinese black vinegar and several drops of chili oil in a sauce dish.)
