Crispy vegetable dumplings

Crispy vegetable dumplings

I first tasted these crispy vegetable dumplings at a food fair and I have been replicating them since. A crispy exterior with a sweet/savoury and hot centre. I made my own dough since it is easier than searching for the ready made ones. Sesame seeds will also be a nice addition over the top of these and for dipping sauces I usually serve these with some sweet chilli sauce.


  • 100g Plain flour
  • 50ml Tepid water
  • 1 Carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 Onion, peeled and diced
  • 50g Mushrooms, peeled and diced
  • 1 Garlic clove, peeled and diced
  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce


  1. Mix the flour and water together until a dough forms.
  2. Knead for a few minutes, cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile stir fry the vegetables until tender.
  4. Mix in the soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce with the vegetables until well combined.
  5. Next divide the dough into golf size portions and roll out each portion to approx 1mm thick.
  6. Put 1 tbsp of the vegetable mix in each rolled piece and fold over. Seal the edges with some water and pleat along the seam.
  7. Heat a pan with a small amount of oil and place on the cresent shaped dumplings.
  8. Fry on each side for approx 3-5 minutes until golden.
