I’m Alice and I am working at International students services (ISS), Flinders International. You may see me during the orientation, at the ISS reception desk, at the events or around the campus. Now, we understand our life has been dramatically changed recently and we have more time staying at home. Then, I felt why not doing something I like while staying at home. As I am loving to try different new recipes, I am going to show you how to simply make dumplings. Take a look at my video or read the instructions below. I hope you enjoy making and eating these dumplings as much as I do!
5-STEPS to make dumplings
Step 1: Prepare the ingredients
Pork mince (this can be replaced by any mince you would like – beef / chicken / lamb / veges…)
Cabbage (again, can be replaced by anything you like – carrots / corns…)
Dumpling coverings (can be purchased in any Asian supermarket or you can make it of flour)
Sauces: soy sauce, oyster sauce, chilly sauce, salt, white pepper sauce, black pepper sauce or any sauces you would like to add
Well, basically that’s it and this is the “hardest” step. The rest steps should be easy…
Step 2: Chop everything you have got
It depends on what mince you would like to put in the dumplings. Just chop everything you have got on your hands into small bits.
Step 3: Mix everything and add sauces
Mix every bits together in a blow and put an egg into it to help for this step. Then you add the sauces based on your preferences.
Step 4: Wrap the mixture in the dumpling covering and do a “test” first
It’s highly recommended that you do a “test” first. Wrap 1 dumpling first and put it into boiled water. Once it is float above water, try the dumpling first to see if you need extra sauces or not.
Step 5: If you are happy with the flavour, keep wrapping and enjoy the dumplings!
Remember: You can save the dumplings in the freezer for future as well.
