I find these dumplings are indispensable for jazzing up soups. The dumpling wrappers can be purchased at specialty Asian stores, but they are simplicity itself to make.

Chicken filling

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g chicken breast, minced twice to make a smooth paste
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy
1 tablespoon ketjap manis
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon grated ginger
2 tablespoons coriander leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon chilli paste, (optional)

Dumpling wrappers

Quantity Ingredient
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup cold water
4 drops sesame oil

Method

  1. To make the chicken filling, place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Use your fingers to scrunch everything together well. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. To make the dumpling wrappers, combine the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the cold water and sesame oil and use your hands to work everything together to a dough. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
  3. Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 5–10 minutes until smooth and shiny. Cut the dough in half and roll each portion into 30 cm lengths. Cut each length into 22 portions.
  4. Working with one portion at a time, roll each ball into a 7 cm pancake. Spoon a teaspoon of stuffing into the centre. Moisten the edges with a little water then press together to seal. Keep the dumplings covered with a tea towel until you are ready to cook them, or transfer to the freezer. They will keep for up to 3 months.
