    1. In a large bowl, combine the pork, watercress, water chestnuts, spring onion, oyster sauce, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, white pepper and salt and mix together well.
    2. Place 1/2 teaspoonful of filling onto each wrapper. Place 1 prawn on the filling, slightly wet the edge of the wrapper, fold over and pinch with your fingers to form a tight seal all the way around. Ensure no air is trapped inside the sealed wrapper.
    3. To cook: Pan fry the dumplings in a large frying pan over medium heat with a little oil for 15 minutes, turning over halfway through. Or, place them in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes; drain and serve in hot chicken stock.

    Used different ingredients. This recipe was really good. I cut down on the sesame oil from prior experience with it. (it is very strong flavoured) Will definitley make it again...very easy. Used minced chicken....cause that's what i had on hand, came out great! Thanks for the recipe!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Perfecto. These have to be some of the best dumpling/wontons I have ever had. I made a triple batch to freeze the extras so I can always have some on hand to make at a moment's notice. I prefer to bake mine at 200 for 15 mintues, turning over halfway through cooking. Thanks so much for coming up with this recipe!  -  08 Oct 2008


    These Dumplings are irrestible and are just like ones I had in Cantonese Style Chinese Restaurant and are Excellent, These would even be better served with a spicey soy sauce for dipping. These were gorgeous Vivian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  -  08 Oct 2008
