Korean-style Dumplings

Method

Combine the pork, chicken, tofu, gochujang, garlic, kimchi, chilli, coriander and spring onions together in a large bowl. Mash with a fork and season with salt and pepper.

Using a teaspoon add a small amount of the mince mixture into the center of the dumpling wrapper. Fold over into a half-moon shape, seal them with a little water and press the dumpling wrapper together to enclose the filling. Repeat with remaining mixture and wrappers.

Place the dumplings in a large pot of boiling water and when they rise to the surface they are cooked. Remove with a strainer or slotted spoon.

Mix together the dressing ingredients in a small jug.

Serve the dumplings hot with the garnishes and dressing poured over the top.
