  • 20 g fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 10 sprigs fresh chives
  • 200 g raw peeled prawns
  • 300 g pork mince
  • 1/2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 package gyoza wrappers (containing at least 40 wrappers)
  • 500 g water, plus extra as needed
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil, for frying, plus extra for greasing
  • Soy Sauce, to serve

Recipe's preparation

  1. Line a baking tray (30 x 40 cm) with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Place ginger, garlic and chives into mixing bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 7. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
  3. Add prawn meat and mince and chop Turbo/2 sec/2-3 times. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
  4. Add cornflour, oyster sauce, sesame oil, egg white, salt and pepper and combine 10 sec/Counter-clockwise operation/speed 4 or until well combined. Transfer into a bowl. Clean and dry mixing bowl.
  5. Place dumpling wrapper onto a clean work surface. Place 1 teaspoon of the filling into the centre of a wrapper. Using wet fingers, dampen edges of wrapper and fold over into a half circle shape to enclose the filling. Pinch edges together to seal, making small pleats along the edge. Place onto prepared tray. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling to make a total of 40 dumplings.
  6. Place water into mixing bowl. Lightly grease Varoma dish and tray with oil and place into position. Divide 20 of the dumplings between Varoma dish and tray, ensuring they do not touch. Secure Varoma lid and steam 10 min/Varoma/speed 1. Transfer into a thermal serving bowl or onto a plate and cover to keep warm.
  7. Divide remaining dumplings between Varoma dish and tray, ensuring they do not touch. Check water levels and top up, if required. Repeat steaming with remaining dumplings. Secure Varoma lid and steam 10 min/Varoma/speed 1.
  8. Place a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add oil. Place 20 steamed dumplings into pan and fry until bottoms are golden brown and crispy (approx. 4-6 minutes). Do not turn. Transfer onto a serving plate and set aside. Repeat frying with remaining dumplings. Serve warm with soy sauce.
