Author's Notes

You can also wrap the Guo Tie a few days ahead and store them in the freezer for a week and they taste just as good with just extra 2-3 minutes of cooking. Just arrange them in single layer with some gap in between on a sheet of parchment paper with a tray and freeze for about an hour. Then put all into a plastic bag without fear of the guo tie sticking to each other.

Directions

Step 1
Wrap Tofu (10.5 oz) with a piece of muslin cloth, then place a heavy object on top to squeeze out the moisture from the block, for about 30 minutes.
Step 2
Place Ground Pork (3.5 oz) , Peeled Prawns (2 oz) Egg (1) and tofu in the food processor together with the Corn Starch (2 Tbsp) , Light Soy Sauce (1/2 Tbsp) , Oyster Sauce (1/2 Tbsp) , Chicken Powder (1 tsp) , Salt (1/2 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1 dash) . Blend tofu mixture coarsely and not too fine, then transfer to a bowl.
Step 3
Add in Spring Onions (3 stalks) and Peeled Prawns (3 oz) with more pepper, mix well.
Step 4
Place about 2 teaspoon of the tofu mixture in the middle of the Dumpling Wrappers (35) and moisten the edge with little water. Fold it up over, use your fingers to make a small pleat on one side of the wrapper until completely sealed like a crescent shape. Repeat the same until you use up the ingredients.
Step 5
Add 2-3 tablespoons oil into heated pan, place in the guo tie and fry them at medium heat until the bottoms till crisp and golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
Step 6
Pour 1/4 cup of water from the sides of the pan. Cover with a lid and reduce to low heat. Cook guo tie for another 3-5 minutes or till fully cooked. You may add a little more water if it dries up quickly and before the guo tie are done cooking.
Step 7
Serve guo tie immediately with dipping sauce. Enjoy!
