Step 1

Mix everything (except the bamboo) together; whip in one direction for a few minutes until the mixture starts to look sticky. Now add the chopped bamboo shoots, and mix everything together. Cover and refrigerate while preparing the dough.

Step 2

Mix the wheat starch and cornstarch in a mixing bowl. Slowly add in the boiling water, while stirring rapidly. Now add in the lard (or oil) and continue to stir. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes, until it turns into a smooth dough ball. Roll the dough into a long cylinder, and divide it into 18 equal pieces. Cover the dough pieces with a damp paper towel.

Step 3

Turn on the stove to pre-boil the water in the steamer. Take one piece of dough and roll it into a 3” diameter circle. Add a spoonful of filling and fold the dumpling as shown in our video. Continue assembling until all the dumplings are made.

Step 4

Once the water in the steamer is boiled, steam the shrimp dumplings for 6 minutes using high heat and serve hot. Make sure that they each have an inch and a half to expand during the cooking process.
