  1. To make the dipping sauce, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir in 1 clove of garlic and the chopped onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Cover and reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tablespoon coriander. Pour sauce into a liquidiser and carefully blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Combine the minced pork, bunch of coriander, chopped onion, spring onions, garam masala, curry powder, 2 cloves of garlic, ginger paste, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Place a heaping teaspoon of the pork mixture in the centre of a dumpling wrapper. Moisten the edge of the wrapper with a few drops of water. Fold the dumpling in half into a half moon shape. Repeat with the remaining dumplings.
  3. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the dumplings, recover and steam until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Serve with the dipping sauce.

Cook's tip

If you make a big batch, place the uncooked dumplings onto a tray and place the tray into the freezer. Once individually frozen, place into a container or bag and store in the freezer. Cook from frozen, adding about 3-5 minutes to the cooking time.


You can substitute chicken, lamb or beef for pork.
