These South Asian dumplings are packed with flavor, thanks to a filling of chicken, fresh ginger, garlic and spicy white pepper.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon canola/vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup minced chicken
3 cloves garlic, finely grated
1/2 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoons chopped coriander (cilantro)
Salt, to taste
Hot chili sauce and soy sauce, to serve alongside
In a bowl, mix together flour, oil and salt. Slowly pour in water and continue mixing until a soft but firm dough forms. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Set in fridge for 20 minutes for mixture to firm up.
To assemble, pinch off small pieces of dough and roll into circles approximately 3 inches in diameter. Place a tablespoon of the chicken filling in the center of the dough. Pull up the sides of the dough towards the middle, and fold to create a pleated design.
Steam in a steamer for 10 minutes and serve with hot chili sauce and soy sauce. Enjoy!
