Preparation steps


With the wheat starch and water (while kneading add in tiny amounts) produce a supple, smooth dough. Roll out thinly, cut out about 8-10 cm (approximately 3-4 inches) circles. Combine shrimp, ginger, sesame oil, pepper, onion (or leek) and salt and mix well.


Place the filling into the center of each circle. Then fold to the center and thereby put the seam side alternately into each other forming into wrinkles. The goal is it should look something like a zig-zag stitching. Then in a bamboo basket steam for 10 minutes. For the sauce, mix all ingredients and serve with the dim sum.
