Recipe adapted from Food & Travel Mag
Ingredient
  • 275gm glutinious rice flour + 1-2 tbsp extra if dough is too wet
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 300gm lean minced pork
  • thumb-sized young ginger, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp shallot oil
  • 40gm chinese cabbage, finely choppped
  • 1 stalk spring onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 800ml chicken stock (make from a cube of stock cube)
  • spring onion & shallot oil for garnish
Method
  1. To make filling : combine minced pork with grated ginger, cabbage and spring onion, mix well. Season with light soy sauce, shallot oil, salt & pepper for at least 30mins. Shape mixture into 30 portions, approx 15gm each.
  2. To make dough : place glutinious rice flour in a mixing bowl, add in water and stir with a wooden spoon till a soft & smooth dough is formed. Portion dough into 30 round balls (approx 18-20gm) and place on a lightly greased plate.
  3. To wrap dumpling : lightly greased hand with oil, flatten a piece of dough and wrap with filling, seal and roll into round balls, placed on lightly greased plate.
  4. Bring a pot of water to boil, drop in wrapped dumpling in batches and stir gently to prevent the dumplings from sticking. Cook till dumplings float onto the surface of the water.
  5. Scoop into individual bowl and ladle in some chicken stock, garnish with some spring onions. Alternatively serve with some red vinegar and shredded ginger.
