Chicken & Chives Dumpling

Compare to the previous dumpling recipe I've done, this batch actually looks so much nicer. This shows that my cooking skills has improved?! hehehe....While the dumplings are in steaming process, I looked through the recipe and realised I've missed a step! oops...I forgot to rest the dough for 10mins! Will it affect the texture of the dumpling or....nevertheless after steaming the dumplings looks fine to me, taste of the skin also acceptable to me :D My boy even give thumbs up and finished 4 dumplings for lunch....

  • 30gm dried shrimp, softened
  • 1/2 cup black fungus, softened
  • 50gm bamboo shoots, chopped
  • 200gm chives, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • salt & pepper to taste

  2. Sift wheat starch, rice flour & salt together. Bring water to boil. pour into the flour mixture. Stir quickly using a wooden spoon till a dough is formed.
  3. Transfer dough onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth & pliable. (be careful as the dough is hot!) Cover the dough and rest for 10mins.
  4. On a floured surface, cut the dough into 3 pieces. Using a rolling pin, flatten each piece as thinly as possible and cut into rounds using a cutter.
