1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
Half cup boiling water
3¾oz large shrimp, minced
Half cup Tilda Basmati Rice, pre-cooked as per the instructions on packet
Half cup Chinese leaves, chopped
1 tsp ginger, finely chopped
½ tsp garlic puree
½ tbs Shaoxing rice wine
½ tbs dark soy sauce
1 tbs spring onions, chopped
1 tsp cilantro, chopped
1 tsp sesame oil
½ tsp palm sugar
3 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs white rice vinegar
2 tsp chili oil
- For the dough, place the flour into a large bowl and stir in the hot water gradually, mixing all the time, until the water is incorporated.
- Tip the dough mixture onto a clean work surface and knead it with your hands, dusting the dough with a little flour if it's sticky. Continue kneading until smooth—this should take about eight minutes, then allow to rest for 20 minutes.
- For the stuffing, while the dough is resting, combine the stuffing ingredients in a large bowl and mix them together thoroughly.
- Shape the dough into a roll about 8 inches long and 1 inch in diameter. Then with a sharp knife, slice the roll into 16 equal-sized pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into a small, round, flat “pancake”—about 3½ inches in diameter.
- Place about two teaspoons of filling in the center of each “pancake” and moisten the edges with water. Fold the dough in half and pinch together with your fingers.
- Pleat around the edge, pinching with your fingers to seal well. The dumplings should look like a small calzone with a flat base and rounded top.
- To cook, steam in a basket for about 8 minutes. Alternatively, they can be fried. For the dipping sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
