  • 30
    won ton wrappers
  • 400
    filling (see below)
  • a small bowl of water (to help the won ton wrapper stick)

    stalk of leek (slice into thin strips)

    cabbage (shredded)
  • 2
    corn starch



Mix all filling ingredients together until it forms a paste.
Scoop a heaped teaspoon into the centre of a won ton wrapper (step 1).
Dab some water on the edges – this will help the wrapper folds hold their shape.
Bring the corners together on the top (step 2).
Place thumb against index finger, like an ‘Okay’ sign, and slot the dim sum through (step 3).
Press the mince down to make it more compact (step 4).
You’re also welcome to add a pea or edamame bean on top to decorate it.
