Fried Sui-Kow 炸饺子
Recipe source : Doris Choo @ Sumptuous Flavours
I usually make dumplings or sui-kow soup. I hardly fry them. However, upon my children's insistence, I fried some as a dim-sum snack for my family.
The dumplings taste good on its own but my children like to dip them in chilli sauce for the extra oomph. Thirty pieces of deep-fried dumplings may seem like a lot but they were all gone in no time. Crunch, crunch, crunch, piece by piece, all gone pretty fast! And they told me to make a bigger batch next time!
250g of minced pork
8 water chestnuts - remove the skin and dice into small pieces
1 stalk of Chinese celery - chopped into small pieces
200g of shrimps - remove the shells and the veins and dice into small pieces
