Among all the food, I am expert at making dumplings. My child is very fussy about food, however, I can proudly say she likes dumplings I made!

To make dumplings by yourself is an easy but cheerful thing. Just follow me step by step and you can achieve it. Today I am going to tutor you how to make chive-port dumplings. My recipe can make up to 48X3 dumplings.

Firstly, we need a shopping list:

  1. a bunch of chives from any Chinese shop;
  2. dumpling skins from any Chinese shop, remember the brand in my photo, other skins might be too thick, 1kg of dumpling skins can make 48X2 dumplings; I bought 1.5 kg so I can make 48X3 dumplings;
  3. pork mince: 1kg ;
  4. a box of eggs;
  5. prawns: 6 or so;
  6. tablet salt ( mostly this is ready in your kitchen);
