Fried Meat Dumpling "Sui Kow"

Fried Meat Dumpling or Fried Sui Kow a dish where everybody loves to eat, simple to make and good to eat... Get a good quality "wanton skin" from the fresh market which gives a good crispy bite when fried. This dish shared the same tagline of Chipsmore biscuits "now u see it, now u don't"...hahaha! Using this same recipe, you may also cook dumpling in soup. The soup base can be from anchovis or chicken. The waterchest nut are added to give extra sweetness to the dumpling and also provides a crunchy feel when it is bite on just as the black fungus too.

All you need : for 2o pieces of Dumplings

  • 200 gms of minced meat - pork or chicken
  • 2 sprig of spring onion - chopped finely
  • 5 waterchest nut - chopped finely
  • 1 large black fungus / woodear mushroom - soaked and chopped finely
  • 1 Tbs sesame oil
  • dash of pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 2 Tbs cornflour
  • 20 pcs of round Wanton skin

Simple Process :

  • Mixed all the ingredients together and put a spoonful into the wanton skin
  • Wet with water at the edge of the skin and fold into half, ensure it stick together
  • Heat some oil in the non-stick pan (just covering the pan) fry the dumpling till lightly brown on each side
  • Dish out and drain the excess oil
