These "dumplings" can be pan-fried or steamed. Serve with the dipping sauce. Make it as spicy as you like by either using spicy sesame oil or Tabasco sauce, to taste.

Tink is right . . . they are wonderful. Followed your recipe with the exception of adding diced water chestnuts! It added a nice crunch! Instead of frying I steamed in my bamboo steamer for about 10 minutes! Great appetizer! Made for Unreviewed Asian Tag!
