Happy Chinese New Year. I was born in the year of the rooster – what year are you?

Tomorrow is Chinese New Year so I thought I would upload a little gluten and dairy free dumpling recipe. I’ll be honest and say I don’t really know a lot about Chinese cooking so not sure how authentic this recipe is. I used minced pork for my filling but you can use whatever you fancy. I also decided to quickly fry my dumplings after they were cooked to give them a little crispy outer but you don’t need to do that.
