Try making your own dumplings - it's easy! Though if you don't feel like making the dough you can use premade wonton wrappers.


Serves: 2 

  • Dumpling wrappers
  • 250g flour
  • 75ml boiling water
  • 75ml cold water
  • Dumpling filling
  • 1 tablespoon tiny dried prawns
  • handful rice noodles (vemicelli)
  • 2 eggs
  • 250g spinach, rinsed and chopped
  • 3 mushrooms, finely diced
  • a little parsley, chopped
  • salt, sugar, pepper and sesame oil, to taste

Preparation:1hour  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

  1. First make the filling: soak the dried prawns and rice noodles in warm water until soft, then finely mince.
  2. Beat the eggs and fry in a nonstick frypan until dry-scrambled.
  3. In a bowl, combine prawns, spinach, noodles, mushrooms, eggs and parsley with salt, sugar, pepper and sesame oil to taste. Set aside.
  4. Make the wrappers: in a bowl combine flour and boiling water and stir well with chopsticks. Gradually add cold water while stirring, to make a dough.
  5. Knead the dough by hand until smooth then cover with plastic wrap and let rest 20 minutes. Knead again and roll into a long sausage. Cut into small balls.
  6. Roll out the balls to make round wrappers about 6cm across. Place a teaspoon of filling on each wrapper and fold in half to seal.
  7. Cook the dumplings in a steamer about 5 minutes, in batches if necessary.
