Special Cooking Equipment Used
Step 1: Start by adding 1 clove of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of coriander stalks to a mortar and pestle, and crush into a paste.
Step 2: Then add 1 cup of prawns and 1 cup of minced chicken to a food processor and mix, then add 1 tbsp of sesame oil, 1 tbsp of soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of meat seasoning powder, 1 tbsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of potato flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and the coriander and garlic paste we made earlier, and then continue mixing until you are left with a thick paste like this.
Step 3: Now place 1 piece of wonton pastry over your fist, spoon in about 1/2 tbsp of the chicken and prawn paste, and push down into your first, wrapping the pastry around the paste but leaving the top uncovered. Smooth out the top edges and repeat this process until you have used up all of the paste.
Step 4: Cut holes into some non stick baking paper, and place the paper at the base of a steamer. The paper is to stop the dumplings sticking to the steamer, and the holes are to let steam through the paper. Place all of the dumplings onto the paper making sure that none of them are touching, and steam for 10 minutes.
Step 5: Once the dumplings are cooked, remove them from the steamer, and garnish with some fried garlic oil, then serve and enjoy with soy sauce for dipping!
