2 eggs - beaten
120 g mushrooms - finely chopped
3 single spring onions - finely shredded
2 slices fresh root ginger - finely chopped
1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons light soya sauce
some beaten egg in dish
2 packets Chinese round dumpling pastry sheets (see picture below - available from good Chinese food stores) - approx. 48

So here's what you do:

1. To make the dumpling mix, take a large bowl and mix together the minced pork , mushrooms, spring onion, ginger and 2 beaten eggs.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and blend well.

2. Take a dumpling pastry sheet;  dab a little of the beaten egg and moisten the perimeter of the dumpling sheet (this is to ensure the pastry sticks together when sealing)

3. Place approx. one tablespoon of the dumpling mix in the centre of the wrapper & carefully fold into a
semicircle; crimp the edge of the dumpling with your fingertips so that it is all sealed and looks like the following:
4. Repeat this process with the remainder of the sheets and mixture.
