Prawn Dumplings (Har Gow) With XO Sauce Recipe


For the dough
  1. In a bowl of a stand mixer, mix the wheat starch, tapioca flour and salt together. Insert the dough hook and turn to the lowest setting. Slowly add the boiling water and then the oil. Turn the speed to medium and continue to mix until the dough comes together into a ball. Remove the dough, knead it a few times until you get a smooth ball and cut it into four equal pieces and place these in a plastic sandwich bag to rest.
  2. Take one of the pieces and roll it into a log around 20 cm long. Cut this into 8 equal parts place the pieces, except for the one you are going to work with back into the sandwhich bag.
  3. Get two sheets of plastic (you can use another sandwich bag, cut in half for it) and lightly oil the bags. Put the piece of dough in the middle of the two bags and press down on the dough with the palm of your hand to flatten.
  4. Take a rolling pin and roll out the dough until around 5 cm in diameter. Cut the dough using a round cookie cutter and place a spoonful of the prawn mixture in the middle of the dough. Fold the dough in half and press the edges together to seal.
