Preparation steps

1.
Put the flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast (crumble fresh yeast if using) and mix with around 120 ml lukewarm water, the sugar and a little of the flour. Cover and leave for around 30 minutes to start working.
2.
Add the salt and knead in the remaining flour to form a smooth dough. Leave for a further 30 minutes to rise, then turn out onto a floured surface, knead once more and leave again for 30 minutes to rise.
3.
For the filling, mix together the spring onions, water chestnuts, chilli and minced pork in a bowl. Flavour with soy sauce, a pinch of sugar and sesame oil.
4.
Knead the dough one last time on a floured surface and divide into 4 pieces. Flatten into circles (approx. 16-18 cm in diameter) and place 1/4 of the filling in the centre of each. Draw up the edges and shape into a dumpling, pressing the edges together well.
5.
Transfer to 4 small, oiled bamboo baskets and cook, with the lid on, over a hot water bath for around 20 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.
