Easy Dumplings

ingredients

  • 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

method

  1. Start by making the dough. Boil the water.
  2. 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.
  3. Mince the garlic, spring onion and chili, and grate the ginger, carrot and cabbage.
  4. Mix the all the chopped vegetables in a bowl along with pork mince, soy sauce and lime juice.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Remove the lid from the frying pan and let the dumplings fry for a few more minutes before transferring them to a plate.
  9. Serve the dumplings with hoisin sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
