Egg dumplings

Egg dumplings are one of my favorites at my grandparents place. What are egg dumplings? Well, they’re basically dumplings, omlette style. Instead of using dough as skin, they use a thin layer of egg. So, I pestered my grandma into teaching me the art. As it turns out, they are actually quite easy to makeThe tricky part is assembly, so here’s a tutorial:

Heat a wok on low heat and apply cooking spray. Keep the heat fairly low to prevent burning your fingers later. Spoon some egg into the pan/wok and rotate so the egg forms a thin, circular layer. Round bottom pans produce better results.

Next, place some meat a close to the side facing away from you and fold the small edge over like a letter

Take a corner and fold over so it forms a triangle.

Finally fold the triangle towards you so the dumpling forms a neat little package. Repeat this process until all the egg and meat is gone.

Cook the dumplings in soup or boiling water for 4-5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!!! If not using all the dumplings made, freeze for up to 2 weeks.


Egg Dumplings

Ingredients

  •  6 eggs
  • 200g ground pork

Directions

Beat the eggs for the wrapper and set aside. Make the filling by incorporating the salt and onion into the pork. Heat a wok or pan on low heat and drop about 1.5 tbsp egg into the pan. Rotate the pan so the egg forms a thin circular layer. Place about a half tablespoon of filling close to the side facing away from you and fold the small side over like a letter. Take a corner and fold over so a triangle forms. Fold the triangle towards you and remove. Repeat until all the egg and meat is used up. Cook for 4-5 min in soup or water or freeze for up to 2 weeks.
