To make the dumplings:

  1. Dust the worktop with flour and roll the dough into a rectangle, the dough should be thinly rolled to a thickness of around 3mm, then use 3.5 inch round cutter to cut the circles
  2. Place the circles of dough onto a tray lined with floured grease proof paper and cover with another sheet of paper or cling film while you work
  3. Place roughly 1.5 tsp of the filling in the centre of the circle, use a pastry brush and some water to moisten the edges, fold the dough in half and pinch together with your fingers, keep your fingers dusted with flour while you work
  4. Pleat around the edge, pinching with your fingers to seal well, working from left to right. The dumpling should have a flat base and rounded top
  5. Transfer each finished dumpling to the floured tray and keep it covered until you have filled all of the dumplings in this way

To cook the dumplings:

  1. Heat the oil in a medium sized pan and fry the dumplings (flat side down) for two minutes or until the bottom looks golden brown, turn the heat down, add the stock/water and quickly add the lid, capturing the steam- be careful as the hot liquid may splash
  2. Steam gently for 5 minutes
  3. Remove the dumplings from the pan, leave to cool slightly on a tray or plate then serve with the dipping sauce
