Step 1

Knead the dough again and make small balls out of it. Roll the balls out with the help of a rolling pin and make them as thin as possible. Cut small circles from the rolled out dough. 

 

Step 3

 

To make the filling, mix 300 grams of minced chicken, 3 tbsp of chopped scallions, ⅓ cup of peeled diced water chestnuts. Add 2 tbsp of cornstarch, a pinch of salt, 1 tsp of white pepper powder, ¼ tsp grated ginger, 2 tbsp of soy sauce and 1 tbsp of toasted sesame oil. 

 

Step 4

 

Take the wonton wrappers and place 1 ½  tbsp of the prepared filling in the centre of it and start making pleats without covering the top. Fill the bottom part of the steamer with water and heat it for 3-4 minutes. 

 

 

 

Step 5

 

Place the prepared dumplings on the top half of the steamer and cover the steamer. Steam for 6-7 minutes. Place the dumplings on a plate and garnish them with some finely chopped scallions. Serve.
