Prawn Dumplings (虾饺)

Pin It Now!

Prawn dumpling is best serve while it is hot. In order to finish in one go I used 1/3 of the recipe. I had some difficulty while pleating the dumplings. I would say I only manage to get nicer shape after half of the dough :p I believe practice make perfect. I definitely will make again whenever craving for these prawn dumplings.

Adapted and slightly modified from Agnes Chang Delightful snacks & dim sum cookbook
100g wheat starch
30g tapioca flour
Pinch of salt
120-140ml hot water
1 tsp vegetable oil
~Filling(I didn't weight)
Equal portion of minced pork and pawn
Seasoned with salt, pepper, cooking wine, cornflour and sesame oil
* Mix all till well combined and fridge till needed
1. Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Pour in the hot water (reserve 10-20ml) and mix with fork. Add a bit more if the dough is too dry.
2. Once cool enough to handle knead with hands. The dough is done when become smooth.
3. Transfer some of the dough on working surface. Cover the rest with wet towel. Roll out into rectangle shape and cut with round shape cutter.
* I have difficulty in getting round by roll up individually. Tend to get thicker skin :P
4. Place a teaspoon of filling in the center and wrap. Place on the steamer and proceed with the rest.
5. Bring water to boil and steam for 5 minutes. Serve while is hot. Enjoy!
