These dumplings are really delicious and I adapted this recipe from watching the Bobby Flays Throwdown at Foodnetwork. He was challenging with this Korean lady and she's a Dumpling Queen. Now...I get to know that to make a good dumplings, you need to add some soft tofu!!!


Now I would like to share this recipe with all of you and hope you'll like it!!!

1 pound ground pork
1 pound shrimp, chopped
1 box extra soft tofu, drained and smashed
2 bunches chinese chives ( ku chai ), chopped
2 tbsp chopped ginger
5 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
3-4 bags dumpling wrapper for mandoo
salt and pepper to taste


METHOD :

1. In a wok, fry the ginger until fragrant and then add chinese chives and stir fry for about 10-15 minutes. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine ground pork, shrimp, tofu, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, salt and pepper. Then stir in the cooked chinese chives and mix it well.

3. Wrap the dumpling mixture into a dumpling wrapper and seal it with an egg wash.

4. Steam the dumplings in high heat for 5-6 minutes on a greased steamer.

5. Served it hot or let it cool and pan fry with some oil.
