- 1/2 dl water
- 1 1/4 dl plain white flour
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 x spring onion
- 1/2 x red chili
- 1 tbsp ginger
- 1 x carrots
- 1/2 dl cabbage
- 150 g pork mince
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/4 x lime
- 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
- Start by making the dough. Boil the water.
- Add the boiling water to a bowl of flour, and mix with your hands until a nice and smooth dough forms. Leave the dough to rest under a damp kitchen towel for about 15 minutes.
- Mince the garlic, spring onion and chili, and grate the ginger, carrot and cabbage.
- Mix the all the chopped vegetables in a bowl along with pork mince, soy sauce and lime juice.
- Roll out the dough as thinly as possible without making holes in it. Use a wide water glass to form circles in the dough and use a butter knife to cut out the circles. Gather the rest of the dough and repeat until there is no dough left.
- Place about half a tablespoon of filling in the centre of each dumpling paper. Fold them together and seal to close. If you're feeling fancy, fold the top in a zigzag pattern, and set aside. Repeat with the rest of the dough and filling.
- Heat a frying pan with some oil, and fry the dumplings on medium-high heat until the bottom is just a little golden. Then, add a small splash of water (just enough to cover the bottom of the frying pan), and let the dumplings steam on medium heat with the lid on for about 10-15 minutes. Note: if you don't have a lid for the frying pan, you can use a baking tray. That's what I did.
- Remove the lid from the frying pan and let the dumplings fry for a few more minutes before transferring them to a plate.
- Serve the dumplings with hoisin sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
