Weekend Cooking Lesson 2: Peping Sytle Fried Dumpling

After my attempt to prepare nasi lemak on Saturday, mom agreed to help resolve my fear of ‘incapability to work in the kitchen’ 😛 again on Sunday. We decided to prepare the Peping Style Fried Dumpling, mom’s recipe when she’s learning how to cook back then! Hmm…”Peping style” Initially wondering what’s that but it’s just a name for this dish… famously known as “Wo Tip“! I just love fried dumpling lots! and now I get to prepare it for myself! Should taste nicer than the ones sold outside! *haha*

The below ingredients are sufficient to prepare about 30 dumplings. Depends on the size of the dumplings that you want them to be…….
Let’s start of with the recipe people 🙂
Ingredients for the skin: the outer layer

  • 8 ounces of multi purpose flour
  • 4 ounces of boiling water (half a rice bowl)
  • 1-2 ounces of cold water

Ingredients for the fillings

  • 1/2 kg Grounded pork
  • 1/2 kg Grounded prawns
  • Chopped dried shiitake mushrooms (have to be soaked first)
  • Stalks of leeks

Grounded pork ~ so pink!

Prawn paste


Chopped Shiitake Mushromms

Another important step is that, the fillings have to be seasoned! with….

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of chinese wine
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Seasoning of the fillings

It’s up to you whether you opt for the dipping sauce as an extra stimulation for the taste bud 😛 But it really stimulate mine! It’s easy peesy!
For the sauce:

  • 1 small plate of shredded young ginger
  • 2 tablespoon of black vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of soya sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon of cooked oil
The sourish and tasty sauce 🙂


  • Place the grounded pork, prawns, mushrooms and leeks in a larger bowl, season and mix these ingredients. Leave them for about 1/2 an hour while preparing the dough for its skin
  • Flatten each dough and put about 1 tablespoon of fillings in the center, then fold over and pinch edges together
  • Heat a flat frying pan until it’s hot enough, add 2 tablespoon of oil and place in the dumplings. Fry until the bottom of the dumpling is golden brown, add 1/2 a bowl of extra ingredient (water with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 tablespoon white vinegar) – to soften the skin and add extra taste to the fillings and skin!
  • Cook till dry then add in another 2 tablespoon of oil (to enhance crispiness on the bottom layer) and fry for another 1/2 minute
  • Arrange them on the serving plate and serve with the sauce! *yes*

Although it’s kinda time consuming when preparing all these but the effort is worthwhile 🙂 Quite tiring.. especially the rate-limiting process of wrapping the fillings up! Luckily my brothers were willing to offer help! Eh… they can make nicely shaped dumplings! Mom did the frying part while we were busy producing them.. We had fun fooling around with the flattening and wrapping process 😛 Flours all over the table 😛

Guess how many dumplings that we managed to make? It’s 97 all together! Oh.. we had so many and our stomachs were overloaded with dumplings!.. Can’t finish and grandpa kept them for his dinner!

The “Wo-Tip” Meal!

I’m lovin’ It! Wanna give it a go? Here’s one for you!
