Chinese Fried Dumplings with Sweet and Sour dipping sauce 炸饺子和酸甜酱

If just eating fried dumplings alone, I feel is a bit plain, usually I prefer to cook a small bowl of sweet and sour sauce to dip with the fried dumplings. My kids can't have enough if I prepare this dumplings.

Chinese Fried Dumplings with Sweet and Sour dipping sauce 炸饺子和酸甜酱 

For the dumplings
150g minced pork
50g shrimps, chopped
2tsp chopped carrot
2tsp chopped water chestnut
1tsp light soy sauce
1/2tsp salt
1/2tsp sesame oil
1/2tsp sugar
1tsp tapioca flour or cornstarch
2tsp water

15pcs of round dumpling wrappers

For the sweet and sour dipping sauce
40g green pepper, cubed
40g red pepper, cubed
¼ onion, cubed
2tbsp tomato ketchup
6tbsp water
1tsp sweet chili sauce
1tsp clear vinegar
1/2tsp oyster sauce
1/4tsp salt 


  1. Mix all dumpling ingredients and marinate for an hour.
  2. Place 1 heaping teaspoonful of the meat mixture in the centre of the wrapper. Using a brush or your fingers, coat the edges of the wrapper with a little water. Fold the circle in half to form a half moon, pressing out any air bubbles. Set aside the completed dumplings while you make the rest.
  3. Deep fry in medium heat cooking oil till golden brown.
  4. For the sweet and sour dipping sauce, mix all seasonings in a small mixing bowl.
  5. Heat little cooking oil, add in onion, green pepper and red pepper, stir fry for a while.
  6. Add in the seasonings mixture, cook till boil.
  7. To serve, dip fried dumpling into sweet and sour dipping sauce, and enjoy!
