Momo's

Method

  • Using a wooden spoon, combine the mince, wonga bok and spring onions with 1 heaped tspn grated ginger, 1 tbsp soy, the rice wine vinegar, seasonings and sesame oil until well incorporated.
  • Cut rounds in the pastry sheets and beat the egg with the milk.
  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heavy-bottomed pot to 180°C.
  • Brush the pastry edges with egg wash and put a teaspoon of the pork mixture in the centre. Fold over the pastry and crimp the edges with fork prongs.
  • Then deep fry the pastries until golden brown all over. Drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • Mix together 1 heaped tbsp shredded ginger with the chillies, red vinegar and a little soy in a small bowl.
  • Serve the dipping sauce alongside the Momo’s.
