Number of Servings: 4


    275g packet gow gee wrappers
    200g chicken mince
    1 small (125g) carrot, finely chopped
    2 spring onions, finely chopped
    100g wombok (Chinese cabbage), finely shredded
    2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    2cm piece ginger, finely grated
    1 tbsp (20ml) salt-reduced soy sauce
    1 tsp Chinese five spice


Separate the gow gee wrappers and cover with a clean damp towel. Combine the chicken mince, carrot, shallots, cabbage, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and five spice in a large bowl. Mix well with your hands.

Put a heaped teaspoonful of chicken mixture in the centre of each wrapper. Brush the edges with water and fold over to make a half circle, being sure to remove all the air. Pleat the edge of the wrapper to seal.

Cook the dumplings in batches in a large saucepan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until they float. Remove with a slotted spoon.

Serve with 1 or 2 teaspoons of chili sauce, or soy sauce, or soy mixed with chili. To make this a main meal, serve with steamed fresh bok choy or other Chinese greens.
