Method


For the Mushroom Broth


Add a handful of washed dried shitake mushrooms to a litre of water. Add a few rough slices of ginger, 20ml light soy sauce & 2-3 tablespoons good quality oyster sauce. Bring to boil, then allow to simmer for at least 20 minutes until the mushrooms are tender. Season to taste with more soy or oyster sauce, remove the mushrooms & cut away the stalk & discard. Slice & reserve some mushrooms for the dumpling filling & add the remainder into serving bowls, then ladle the broth into the bowls, add a small handful of bean sprouts, a few steamed dumplings, chopped coriander, spring onion & asian celery leaf & serve with a drizzle of sesame oil, dipping sauce & chilli oil on the side. 


For the Dumpling Filling


In a bowl combine all of the ingredients. Place a small spoon of filling into the centre of the wrapper. Brush the edge with a little water or cornflour mixed with water & wrap into desired shape. Place into a steamer basket lined with banana leaf, grease lightly so that they do not stick, allowing space so that steam can flow through. Heat water in the base of a wok until boiling. Add the steamer & steam for about 5 minutes until cooked through. Enjoy as they are, with dipping sauce & chilli oil or in the light mushroom broth.


Dipping Sauce


Combine all ingredients in a small dipping bowl. 


Chilli Oil


Place the oil in a pan and add chilli. Bring to a gentle simmer and turn off the heat. Cool and store in an airtight container.
