2 Stalks Scallions, finely chopped
Sesame Oil, optional
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground White Pepper

200 g Ground Pork

1 Tbsp Corn Flour
¼ tsp White Pepper
¾ tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Sesame Oil

½ tsp White Peppercorns
2 Chicken Legs, skinless
1 Yellow Onion, halved
1 Medium Size Spice Bag or Muslin Cloth
8 Cups of Water
Sea Salt, to taste


Wonton Filling: Combine the wonton filling ingredients, mix well, and using a pair of chopstick or your hand to stir the stuffing in one direction. Then let the wonton filling marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Make the anchovy stock/broth: Bring water to a boil. Place anchovies and white peppercorns in a spice bag and tie with a kitchen string. Then place spice bag, chicken legs, and onion in the boiling water. Closed with a lid, reduce the heat to low and simmer the stock for about 1 to 2 hours. Then season the stock with some sea salt.

Wonton Soup: Place a good teaspoon of the wonton filling in the center of the wrapper. Gather all the corners to the center and press firmly to seal. When ready to serve, bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add about 1 tsp of sea salt. Blanch the vegetables, remove and set aside. Drop some wontons in the boiling water. When all the wontons have risen to the surfaces, cook for another minute. Then remove with a slotted spoon and place into a bowl with some vegetables. Ladle the stock/broth into the bowl. Drizzle some sesame oil, if using. Top with some scallions and a few dashes of white pepper.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
