Prep time: 45 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes


For the dumplings:

  • 30 dumpling wrappers
  • 1/2 pack of Deliciou Plant-based Pork
  • 1/2 brown onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 cup of chives finely chopped
  • 1 tsp of fresh grated ginger
  • 1 1/2  tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp of sesame oil
  • 1 tsp of sugar 
  • 1 tbsp of mirin or Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 Tbsp corn flour
  • 1 tsp of pepper 

For the sauce

  • 1 stalk of spring onion finely chopped
  • 1 garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp chilli
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp white or black vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp dried chilli
  • 1 tsp sugar


  1. In a large bowl, follow the instructions of the Deliciou Pork box to create pork mince. Add all other ingredients for the dumplings and mix well.
  1. To make the dumplings, dip your finger in a bit of fresh water and moisten the outer edges of half the dumpling wrapper (in a semi-circle). Using a teaspoon, add the mixture in the middle of the pastry. Fold the pastry in half and press the edges firmly to get an airtight seal. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the bottom of the dumpling, so it sits upright.
  1. Oil a non stick frying pan, lay the dumplings onto the pan and place it on a high heat. Add 1/2 cup of water before the oil gets too hot and cover it with a lid and cook for 5 -7 mins until water completely evaporates and bottom of the dumplings become golden brown. Flip the dumplings to cook the other side.
  1. For the sauce, add spring onion, garlic, ginger and chilli in a heat proof bowl. Using a small sauce pot, heat up the oil until it smokes and with caution, pour the hot oil over the ingredients in the bowl. Add remaining ingredients in the bowl and mix well and serve with the dumplings.
