Dipping sauce

  • 2 tablespoons rice-wine vinegar

  • Juice 1 lemon or lime
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet chilli sauce (optional)


  • 1 carrot or 1 zucchini, grated

  • Finely chopped mushroom/bamboo shoots/water chestnuts
  • Sweet corn kernels
  • 2-3 tablespoons plain flour
  • Handful of herbs (coriander, Vietnamese mint, chives), chopped
  • 16 round dumpling wrappers
  • Oil for cooking (peanut, sunflower, sesame)


Dipping sauce

  1. Whisk ingredients in a small bowl
  2. Set aside


  1. Prepare vegetables and herbs (wash and cut/shred) and put in a large bowl
  2. Stir to combine
  3. Put flour onto your work surface
  4. Put 16 wonton wrappers on the flour
  5. Place 1 teaspoon of filling on one side of the wrapper (be mindful not to overfill)
  6. Brush the sides of the wonton wrappers with water
  7. Fold the wrappers over and pinch the sides together to seal

Cooking the dumplings

  1. Coat the bottom of a non-stick frypan with oil and heat over medium to high heat for 1-2 minutes
  2. Place dumplings in the pan
  3. When bottom gets brown, add 1/4 cup of water (it will spit) and immediately cover (to steam the dumplings)
  4. Carefully watch the dumplings and completely evaporate the water so that the bottom gets crispy again and starts to stick to the pot (about 3 mins)
  5. Serve 3 or 4 per person with small bowl of dipping sauce


Try using other fillings including chopped chicken, fresh baby spinach or snow peas.

Try adding finely grated tofu into the carrot, zucchini and cabbage filling.
