Prawn Dumplings

Original Recipe by Amy Beh

  • 200g medium prawns, shelled and diced
  • 100g pork with a little fat, finely chopped
  • 3 water chestnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 dried Chinese mushrooms, soaked and diced
  • 20-25 pieces wantan skins


  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Dash of monosodium glutamate
  • ½ an egg white
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp cornflour

    Combine pork, prawns, mushrooms and water chestnuts in a bowl. Add seasoning ingredients and stir with a pair of chopsticks until the mixture is well combined. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    Take a piece of wantan skin and place a teaspoonful of filling in the centre. Fold into half and pinch the edges together, then gather the edges to form pleats. Leave the dumplings in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before boiling.

    Prepare your own soup stock and drop in the prepared dumplings to cook.
