The instruction how to make Pork, shiitake & water chestnut dumplings

  1. Place the mushrooms in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water and set aside for 10 minutes to soak. Drain. Finely chop.
  2. Combine the mushroom, pork, water chestnuts, shallot, coriander, ginger, Chinese rice wine, caster sugar, Chinese five spice and salt in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to develop the flavours.
  3. Place half the wonton wrappers on a clean work surface. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the pork mixture into the centre of each wrapper. Brush the edges with a little water. Pinch the edges together to enclose the filling. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers and pork mixture.
  4. Line the base of a bamboo steamer with non-stick baking paper. Place 8 dumplings in the steamer and place over a wok of simmering water. Steam, covered, for 6 minutes or until cooked. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with remaining dumplings.
  5. Meanwhile, to make the soy chilli dipping sauce, place the soy sauce, Chinese rice wine, ginger, chilli and sugar in a bowl. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  6. Serve the dumplings with the dipping sauce.
