Golden Caps Dumplings

Dim Sum! Everyone's favourite! I'm sure that most of us have our favourite plate of dim sum in mind whenever we frequent our favourite Dim Sum restaurant. There are a number of favourites ranging from century egg porridge, steamed baos, braised chicken feet, fried yam cakes, fish balls, yong tau fu, the list is endless! Having Dim Sum in restaurants are not cheap either! My most favourite whenever I visit the Dim Sum restaurants will be the century egg porridge, fried yam cakes and stuffed chillies. My kids would go for the fishballs and fried wonton. Even fried wonton has a few varieties. Since my kids love fried wonton, here I have made some Golden Cap Dumplings.


 These are really easy and simple to make. Prepare the filling and place about a tablespoon of filling on a piece of round wonton wrapper



Roll it up and bring the two edges together in a circle, brushing the ends with a little cornflour solution to seal them together.


 Cute little dumplings!


 Anyway you look at it, these are cute, before they are fried, that is!


Not so cute after frying! Deep fry the dumplings and serve with your favourite chili sauce. Excuse the blur photos, I was in a hurry to get dinner going, so was kinda rush when taking these photos!


Four pieces, where's the other three?  Ooops...!! Well, it is difficult to stop at  just one! Yummy! :o)

What's your favourite dim sum?



Small Small Baker/Aspiring Baker



Golden Caps Dumplings
30-35 pieces round wonton wrapper
1 teaspoon cornflour mixed with 1 tablespoon water


For The Filling :
200gm minced pork
150gm minced prawns
1 tablespoon finely chopped Shitake mushroom (soaked till soften and chopped to small bits)
2 tablespoon chopped coriander or spring onion
1 tablespoon cornflour
a few drops of sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste

  1. Mix all filling ingredients well into a paste. To ensure that paste is well seasoned, pan-fry about 1 teaspoon with a few drops of oil, taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
  2. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling onto wonton wrapper. Roll it up. Bring the two ends together in a circle and brush the ends with a little cornflour solution. Press together to so that they stick together to seal. Repeat with the rest of ingredients and wonton wrapper.
  3. Heat enough oil for deep frying. Deep-fry Golden Caps until golden brown and cripsy. Remove and drain on kitchen paper towel to absorb excess oil. 
  4. Serve hot while still crispy with your favourite chili sauce.
