Each serving of this recipe contains only 570 calories.
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- ½ cup of water
- 3 dashes of white pepper powder
- 1 ½ teaspoon of rice wine
- 500 g of ground pork
- ½ cup of chopped Chinese chives
- ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil
- 1/8 teaspoon of salt
- Chinese black vinegar
- For around 15 minutes, mix the flour with water and knead it until the dough is soft. Roll the dough into cylinders after dividing it in half (about 1 inch in diameter). Set them aside after covering them with a moist towel.
- The root or white component of the chives should be cut off before preparing the chives. Only use the green section. Mix the ground pork with the chives and add the rest of the Filling ingredients. Make sure everything is fully combined by giving it a good stir.
- Use a rolling pin in flattening the dough into a spherical shape about 3 inches in diameter by cutting it into 1/4-inch lengths. Then, using your fingers, tightly seal the skin around a small scoop of contents. This recipe does not necessitate pleating. Keep doing this process until all of the ingredients have been used up.
- To begin, bring water to a boil. Pour in the dumplings, cover the saucepan, and cook for a few minutes. Once the dumplings begin to float, use a sieve to transfer them to a serving tray. Serve it with black vinegar on the side.
