Instructions

  1. To prepare the filling: Steam mung beans for 25-30 minutes, or until soft. Blend with the rest of the filling ingredients to a fine paste. In a non-stick pan, add shallot oil and bean paste; fry over medium heat until paste is dry. Divide equally and shape into balls.

  4. To steam: Steam dumplings over high heat for 4 minutes, brush lightly with oil, and steam a further 5-6 minutes.
