Pan-Fried Dumplings, the best Asian-style dumplings with shrimp and pork. They are a fantastic appetizer for any party, and can be ready in about 15-20 minutes.
To make the dumplings, mix all the ingredients together.
Get a wrapper, brush its edges with water, then add about a teaspoon of the filling, making sure you don't overfill.
Fold the wrapper in half, then make a pleat in the top part of the wrapper, pinching it against the flat edge of the wrapper at the back.
Make a few more pleats on the right side of the wrapper, then pleat on the other side now.
Repeat with the rest of the wrappers, until the filling is used up.
Heat up the vegetable oil in a large frying pan, add the dumplings, making sure you don't overcrowd the pan.
Fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until the bottom of the dumplings is golden brown and crispy, then add the water, place the lid on, and leave the dumplings to steam for about 5 minutes until the water is evaporated and the dumplings are cooked through.
To make the dipping sauce, mix all the ingredients together, then stir.
Serve the dumplings hot.
