How to make it

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the wrappers, water and black vinegar to make the filling. Mix thoroughly to form a thick paste.
  2. Take a wrapper and spoon 2 tsp. of the filling into the middle of the wrapper.
  3. Wet the edges of the wrapper with some water, then bring half the wrapper over the filling so it’s halved and pinch the edges together to form a tight seal.
  4. Next, wet the corners of the half circle and bring them together, then pinch. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the wrappers and filling are used up. Place dumplings into a lined steam basket.
  5. Boil a saucepan of water over high heat and place the steam basket over the top. Steam for 8-9 mins.
  6. Sprinkle extra spring onions over the top, and serve with soy sauce and black vinegar on the side.
  7. Enjoy!
