GRANDMA’S VEGGIE DUMPLINGS 🥟👵🏼 Every time I visit home, my grandma would gift me with a giant bag of DELICIOUS handmade dumplings… I feel like the luckiest granddaughter ever 💓⁣

So in honour of my amazing Granny, here is her recipe translated from Chinese to English ➡️⁣

GRANDMA’S VEGGIE DUMPLINGS ⁣

Makes: 30 dumplings⁣
INGREDIENTS:⁣
✅ 30 dumpling wrappers ⁣
✅ 2 cups of cabbage, finely chopped ⁣
✅ 1/2 cup of chives, finely chopped ⁣
✅ 1 cup of firm tofu, finely diced⁣
✅ 6-8 Shitake mushrooms, soaked & diced⁣
✅1 tablespoon of minced ginger ⁣

✅ 1 teaspoon salt ⁣
✅ 1/2 teaspoon white pepper⁣
✅ 1 teaspoon mushroom stock powder⁣
✅ 2 tablespoons soy sauce⁣
✅ 2 tablespoon cooking oil + 1 tablespoon for cooking ⁣
*Optional: a dash of vegan oyster sauce⁣

METHOD:⁣
1. Prepare, chop and all the vegetables & seasonings into a large bowl. Mix everything together.⁣
2. ASSEMBLE the dumplings: set up a little dish filled with water. Use your finger to dip it in the water & moisten the edges of one side of the wrapper.⁣
3. Add 2 teaspoons of filling into the centre of the wrapper. Then fold the sides of the wrapper together a press to create a semi-circle shape. Create 5 – 6 pleats along the edges. Repeat with remaining wrappers & filling.⁣
4. PANFRY the dumplings: Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in nonstick pan ON medium-high heat. Arrange 10-12 dumplings in the pan such that they do not overlap. Fry for 2 minutes until the bottoms are golden.⁣
5. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Pour in ¼ cup water into the side of the pan (*be careful as the oil may splatter). Cover the pan with a lid & allow dumplings to steam until the water evaporates, about 3-5 mins.⁣
6. Remove the lid & increase the heat to medium-high. Fry for 2 more mins, until bottoms are brown & crisp.⁣
7. If you want to make more, work in batches, adding another tablespoon of oil + ¼ cup water for each batch. ⁣
8. Dip in your fave sauce to serve. My fave is: half soy sauce, half black vinegar + chilli oil ⁣

*Storage: in the freezer for months & cook directly from frozen (add a bit of extra cooking time) ⁣

Enjoy! Please tag me if you guys try this so I can show my grandma ☺️⁣
