Before you start

Clean cloth | Mixing bowl | Deep frying pan with lid

If from frozen, cook the edamame beans

  • Place the edamame beans in a small microwavable bowl and cover with boiling water.
  • Leave for at least 5 minutes, or however long it states on packet.
  • After 5 minutes, drain the water and place the bowl in the microwave, cook for 3 minutes. 

    Prepare the ingredients

  • Finely chop the edamame beans.
  • Peel and dice the shallot and garlic.
  • Finely dice the red peppers.
  • Trim and finely slice the spring onions.
  • Peel and grate the ginger.

Make the filling

  • In a large bowl, mix together the chopped edamame beans, diced shallot, diced garlic, diced red peppers, diced carrot, sliced spring onions, grated ginger, sugar, soy sauce and a pinch of salt.
  • Mix well, before using your hands to knead the mixture until it roughly holds together.

Shape the dumplings

  • Use a teaspoon to spoon a small amount of the mixture into each dumpling wrapper, crimping the wrapper in your hand with a little water spread on the wrapper to help close it.
  • Keep the other wrappers wrapped in cling film whilst you fill each one to avoid drying.

Cook the dumplings

  • Place a large pan over a medium heat and add the vegetable oil.
  • Once warm enough to fry, add the dumplings to the pan and cook for around 2 minutes until crispy and golden on the flat side (you will have to do this in batches - between 8-10 dumplings at a time).
  • After 2 minutes, add a splash of water (around 100-120ml) to the pan.
  • Place the lid on top of the pan, allowing the dumplings to steam for 3 minutes.
  • After 3 minutes, remove the lid to allow the water to steam off and cook the dumplings for another couple of minutes in the oil to allow them to crisp up again.
  • Repeat this process, keeping the finished dumplings warm.

Make the dipping sauce

  • Deseed and slice the red chilli.
  • Place the soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, toasted sesame oil and chopped chilli into a bowl and mix together. 

    Time to serve

  • Serve the dumplings on a large serving plate, with the dipping sauce on the side.
