Saw 子瑜妈妈美食坊 made the beautiful mini prawns dumplings, at 子瑜妈妈爱米美食坊  she shared how to make the store bought dumpling skin thinner. By using the rolling pin to roll over the store bought dumpling skin a few times, we can get a thinner skin. Trying her recipe with the store bought dumpling skin.

Indeed the dumpling skin becomes bigger after rolling, whether it has becomes thinner, this you have to justify it yourself. I always deep fried the dumplings, this is the first time trying to boil them in boiling water. When I used the chopstick to poke the dumpling, gravy oozing out from it, I love this! This is definately a healthier choice if compared to deep fried dumplings. 


Recipe adapted from 子瑜妈妈美食坊 

Ingredients for filling:
250g prawns, peeled, cleaned and chopped
250g meat (I used pork), chopped
60g carrot, grated
1 egg
some spring onions, chopped
some salt
a pinch of peppers

1. Place prawns, meat, carrot, egg and spring onions in a bowl, add the salt, peppers and stir well in the same direction. Set aside.
2. Using a piece of dumpling skin, stuff the filling and make a pleat.
3. Place the dumpling in hot boiling water, boil for 4-6 mins. or until the dumpling float on the boiling water. Serve while hot.
