Dumplings are wonderful Chinese appetizers or snacks. There are many types and for me they are all very delicious. It is best eaten with chili garlic oil and soy sauce with lemon. Although, there are some that are good enough as is.
350g canned crab meat, drained
227g canned water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
3cm knob fresh ginger, grated
1 long red chili, finely chopped
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
30 gow gee wrappers
Place the crab, chestnuts, chives, chili, ginger, fish sauce and soy sauce in a bowl. Mix well.
Lay the wrappers individually on a flat surface. Put 2 teaspoons of the crab mixture on one part of the wrapper. Brush the edges with water and fold it. Crease the edges to seal. Repeat this with the remaining ingredients.
Line a steamer with baking paper and put the dumplings in it. Keep them half an inch apart. Steam them in batches for 10-15 minutes or until they are tender.Â Serve warm.
