To make the pastry blend water, salt and flour together until it makes a ball in a food processor. Allow to rest for 20 min.

Add dumpling filling ingredients to food processor and blend for 10 – 20 sec until combined. Alternatively, mash up the filling up with a fork.

Lay out dumpling pastry on bench (have some extra flour to avoid stickiness). Place a tsp of filling in the centre. Wipe a little water around the edge of the pastry and seal by pushing together with fingers. Lay on a tray covered with a dry tea towel and refrigerate until ready to use. When ready to cook, heat the chicken stock in a pot and heat a large pot of salted water to a rapid boil. Add dumplings and stir to prevent sticking. Bring back to the boil. When cooked, 3 – 5 min. Place an even amount of dumplings in each serving bowl. Cover with boiling chicken stock. And garnish with some spring onions and fried shallots.
