  • 5 Chinese mushrooms, rehydrated and finely diced

  • 1 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Premium Oyster Sauce

  • 1 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Double Deluxe Soy Sauce (or Premium Light Soy Sauce)

  • 1 tsp Lee Kum Kee Sesame Oil

Dipping Sauces (choose 1 or more)

  • Spicy: 1 tbsp Chiu Chow Chilli Oil (add in 1 tsp into the sauce make it even tastier) *

  • Soy & Vinegar: 2 tbsp Oriental Sesame Dressing or mix 1 tbsp Sweet Soy Sauce + 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar + 1 tsp Sesame oil and ½ tsp chilli oil *

* Add a handful of chopped coriander leaves to the dressing for a nice twist!

  • Oriental Sweet Soy Dressing: 2 tbsp Sweet Soy Sauce + 1 tsp fresh grated ginger + 1 tsp sesame oil

Prepare the filling ingredients, mix together in a bowl and marinate.

Place heaped teaspoon of filling in the centre of each dumpling skin and moisten the edges with water. Fold the skin in half and seal the edges by pinching it together in pleat. Practice pleating with a Chinese chef - click for the video!

Heat a frying pan and add 1 tbsb oil. Place the folded dumplings one by one in the hot pan, add boiling water into the bottom of the pan (about 1cm). Cover with a lid. See the video on how to cook pot-stickers here! 

Keep covered and cooking until water has disappeared (~ 6min), remove from the pan. Meanwhile mix the sauces.

Enjoy hot, dipped into your favourite dressing sauce!

* Tips: Dumplings can also be boiled or steamed for an even healthier version.
