This recipe makes BULK dumplings! I made around 50 with the ingredients, so if you're making for a family this recipe is perfect, but you can always half the ingredients to make less. 

3 spring onions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
2 cups Chinese cabbage, finely chopped
1/2 long red chilli, finely chopped
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
500g chicken mince
50 x dumpling wrappers

  1. Heat a non stick pan over high heat. Add sesame oil and heat for 30 seconds.
  2. Add garlic, spring onions, ginger, chilli and Chinese cabbage into the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the cabbage is completely wilted and cooked through.
  3. Add soy sauce to the pan and stir through. 
  4. Take mixture out of the pan and leave to cool down. 
  5. Combine cabbage mixture with the chicken mince and begin filling the dumpling wrappers! 
  6. Place around 1 tbsp of filling into the middle of the dumpling wrapper. Dip your finger in a bowl of water and run it around the edge of the dumpling, this helps it close easily! Fold the dumpling in half. Pinch the wrapper together in the middle. 
  7. Use your opposite thumps to fold a tiny pleat on either side of the dumpling, then press down firmly to seal it closed. If they're not closing, you may need a little touch of water. 
  8. Repeat with all of the mixture.
  9. Using a steamer, steam the dumplings for 20 minutes. Serve with Soy or chilli sauce! 


  • Hey Leah! So excited to make these, they look phenomenal.. just wondering what you would suggest serving them with as a main meal? Or are they better served as an entree? Xx

  • Hi Leah, where do you find dumpling wrappers? At my local Coles all I can find is spring roll wrappers in the frozen pastry section which are way too thin. I tried and they failed!

  • Hi Leah, just curious on the serving size for these dumplings?

  • I am keen to hear what wrappers you use too! I have used Gow Gee in the past, but I struggle to get a tablespoon in it!

  • Hey Leah, what kind of dumpling wrapper did you use?
