Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 24-26 dumplings


250g pork mince
250g bok choy, washed, trimmed, halved lengthwise
2 tsp premium oyster sauce
1 tsp chicken powder
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp ginger ground
1 tsp sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp Chinese cooking wine
1/4 tsp sesame oil

30 pieces of wonton skin

3-4 cups water
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp chicken powder
1 tsp premium oyster sauce
Salt and pepper
Sliced spring onion
Sliced ginger
Pak choy

Homemade chilli soy sauce
1 cup mix chilli, trimmed, chopped
1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
1 cup premium soy sauce
2 tsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp peanut oil


  • Cook bok choy in boiling water for 1 minute. This helps soften the vegetable.

  • Rinse in cool water and drain.

  • Finely chop the softened bok choy.

  • Press chopped bok choy in a mesh strainer to remove excess water. This is crucial to make a nice filling.

  • In a mixing bowl, add pork mince, chopped bok choy and all other filling ingredients, mix thoroughly to form a sticky filling.

  • Place approximately 1 tsp to 1 1/2 tsp filling into the centre of a wonton skin. The authentic Cantonese wonton should have only a small spoon of filling.

  • Wet each edge with a little water.

  • Wrap into your desired form, no need to worry about the shape as long as it can be wrapped without any filling exposed.

  • Put some into the freezer if they cannot be consumed all at a time.

  • Cook wonton. In a deep pan, add 3-4 cups water, 1 tsp chicken powder, 1 tsp premium oyster sauce, some sliced ginger, some sliced spring onion, some salt and pepper, bring to a boil.

  • Add the wrapped wonton, use a spoon or chopsticks to separate occasionally, cook for 4 minutes.

  • Add some pak choy (it is different from bok choy) or your favourite Asian greens, cook for another 3 minutes until all the wontons float to the top.

  • Transfer and arrange the cooked veggies and wontons on a plate/bowl.

  • Prepare chilli soy sauce.

  • Heat 1 tbsp peanut oil in a saucepan over high heat, add chopped chilli and chopped garlic, saute for 1-2 minutes, add 1 cup premium soy sauce and 2 tsp rice vinegar. Bring to a simmer.

  • Turn off heat. Allow to cool. Store in an airtight bottle. If you store in the fridge, it can last for a few months.

  • Drizzle with some homemade chilli sauce.

  • Serve hot. If you can't eat spicy food, just enjoy them in a bowl of broth.
