Cheater's Mini Pan Fried Soup Dumplings
- appropriate amount dumpling wrappers
- appropriate amount of soup dumpling filling (or any juicy dumpling filling of choice)
- Take a dumpling wrapper and gently roll it out (the size should increase by ½-3/4cm). and wet the sides by dipping your index finger in water and running it around dumpling. Place 1-2 heaping tablespoon of filling in the middle and pleat it closed.
- Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a pan and then place in the dumplings over medium heat until lightly golden on the bottom. Pour in 3-4 tablespoon of water and cover for 4-5 minutes or until most of the water has cooked off. Uncover, sprinkle sesame seeds and scallions. Continue to pan fry until all the water is evaporated and the bottom is beautifully crispy again.
- Serve with Shanghai red vinegar or Chinese black vinegar and a bit of chili oil if you like it spicy!
