Dumpling making 

Mrs Eio finally gets down to make dumplings. 

 Ingredients for the dumpling skin:

  • 3 cups of plain flour
  • 1/3 tsp of salt
  • 1 cup of hot water

Mix the salt & flour together. Gradually add the hot water into the flour & mix them tog. It’ll be lumpy in the beginning but make sure not to add too much water. Knead the dough till its smooth & ready to be used. 

Let the dough rest for at least 1 hour. Cover it when it’s resting so the dough don’t dry up. 

 

This dough yields about 25-30 dumplings. 

Divide the dough into 30 pieces . Have a cup of flour beside you to coat the small pieces of dough. Roll them into small balls & press them flat like a pancake so that it’s easier to roll them into skin. Once you have rolled them into skin, coat the skin with some flour to prevent them from sticking with one another. 

Add 2 tsp of meat fillings into the dumpling skin. Fold the skin into half.  Press it down to close the opening or make a side gathers.

For the fillings, Mrs Eio uses the following: 

  • 400g of minced pork
  • 1 cup of chopped celery 
  • Half a cup of chopped carrots
  • 2 tsp of grated ginger
  • Seasoning: 1/2 tsp of salt, 2 tsp of fish sauce, 1 tsp of sesame oil, some pepper, 2 tsp of oyster sauce. 

Mixed well. 

 To make her preparation worthwhile, Mrs Eio also add the carrot & celery (bigger cut) into her pot of corn soup for dinner. There’s another container of marinated pork with chopped carrots to be frozen for another meal. Probably to cook with mushrooms or beancurd. Here’s the dumpling fillings. Mrs Eio will freeze the dumplings for another meal. 🙂 
Mrs Eio has her own preference on the sauce to dip her cooked dumplings. 

Dumpling sauce for dipping: 

  • 3tbsp of vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp of soya sauce
  • 2 tsp of grated ginger

Mix all the above together. Wallah! Enjoy…
