  1. Method :

  2. To make the dough, sift the flour into a bowl. Stir in the boiling water, then the cold water together with the oil. Mix to form a ball and knead until smooth. Divide the mixture into sixteen equal pieces and shape into circles.

  3. For the filling, mix together the pork, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, sherry, sugar and oil. Then stir in the corn flour.

  4. Place a little of the filling in the centre of each dim sum circle. Carefully pinch the edges of the dough together to form little "purses".

  5. Lime a steamer with a damp dish towel. Place the dim sum in the steamer and steam for 5-10 minutes.

  6. Serve on a bed of lettuce with soy sauce, spring onion curls, sliced red chili and prawn crackers, if you wish.
