Dumpling cooking instructions

1. Fill a large pot 2/3 of the way with water. Add 1 tbsp cooking oil and 1 tsp salt. Turn the stove on to high.


2. Bring to the boil. Add your frozen dumplings (never defrost them beforehand). Make sure you don’t over fill the pot. Rather cook them in two batches to avoid overcrowding. Give it a quick swirl and put lid on. *Vegan Dumplings - cook 15 per batch.
 

3. Once the water boils again, add 1 cup cold water. Repeat this process 1 more time. Leave the lid off.
*If you are preparing Juicy Vegan Dumplings then skip the cold water process. When the water boils for the 1st time, wait for 2 - 3 minutes then follow step 4. Vegan Dumplings require much shorter cooking time. For best results steam vegan dumplings on high heat for           6 - 8 minutes.


4. Drain the dumplings and drizzle them with sesame oil or any cooking oil.
 

5. Enjoy with our complimentary flavour pack.


Dipping sauce - add the complimentary flavour pack to the following:

3 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp vinegar, and 1 tbsp sesame oil.
 

Pro tip: Use lots of water, keep the heat on high and stir as little as possible.

Potsticker cooking instructions 

1. Coat a nonstick pan with cooking oil. Turn the stove on to high.

2. Mix together 1 cup cold water, 1 tbsp cornflour, 1 tbsp vinegar and 1 tsp cooking oil.


3. When the pan is smoking hot, add your frozen potstickers. Space them out in a single layer.


4. Pour the cornflour mixture into the pan. There should be enough liquid to cover the basis of the potstickers. Immediately put on the lid.
 

5. Wait for roughly 5 minutes and take the lid off. Most of the cornflour mixture should have evaporated by this stage, wait for a few minutes
longer until you see a beautiful golden brown lace around the potstickers.

 

6. Position a dinner plate over the pan and quickly flip it upside down.
 

7. Enjoy it with our complimentary flavour pack.

Dipping sauce - add the complimentary sauce pack to the following:

3 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp vinegar, and 1 tbsp sesame oil.

Pro tip: Make sure your pan is non-stick with a lid, preferably one you can see through.
