Pork and prawn dumplings

Pork and prawn dumplings

These homemade dim sum are easier to make than you think - and so delicious that you'll want to make them every Sunday.

Ingredients

For the filling
For the dumplings
  • 10 ready-made wonton wrappers (available from Asian grocers)

  • groundnut oil, for greasing

To serve

Preparation method

  1. For the filling, mix all of the filling ingredients together in a bowl.

  2. For the dumplings, place two teaspoons of the filling mixture into the centre of one of the wanton wrappers. Gather up the sides of the wonton wrapper and mould around the filling into a ball shape, leaving the filling in the centre exposed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers, until the filling is used up. Top each with a goji berry, if using.

  3. Oil the bottom of a bamboo steamer and line with greaseproof paper. Place the dumplings in the steamer, cover with a lid and place over a pan of boiling water (making sure the water does not touch the base of the steamer). Steam the dumplings for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked through.

  4. Combine the chilli and soy sauce in a bowl and serve with the dumplings.
