Product recommendation
Shop-bought wonton wrappers may be used instead of making your own dough.

Preparation steps

Mix the flour, salt, egg and water in a mixing bowl until you have a smooth dough. You may need to add a little more water but be careful the dough doesn't become too wet.
Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes then place in a clean bowl, cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the filling. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, stirring in one direction only. To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
Turn the dough onto a floured board, knead it gently then roll it into a cylinder and cut into about 16 pieces. Take each piece of dough and roll it as thinly as possible and cut in into a neat square. Place a little of the filling on the middle of the dough and draw the edges of the dough together to make an open-topped parcel. Gently press the dough together so the parcel keeps its shape. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling, covering the dough you are not using with a clean cloth to prevent it drying out.
Steam the wontons in a steamer lined with greaseproof paper for about 8 minutes or until the filling is cooked through.
Place the coriander sprigs on top of the wontons and serve with the sauce alongside.
