Servings: 24 boxes



  • 400 g flour
  • 210 ml water
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 350 g Chinese Chives clean & finely chopped
  • 1 carrot finely sliced
  • 100 g shittake mushrooms chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp oil


  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp mushroom stir fry sauce
  • salt to taste



  • Add the flour and salt into a big bowl for easy kneading. Pour water little at a time. It’s all depending on the quality of the flour, some may need 210 ml of water and some may need less than 200 ml to have perfectly knead dough.
  • Knead the dough till it doesn’t stick anymore on hand. (add flour if dough is too soft) Cover and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.


  • Heat up oil in a wok, add in the garlic and sauté till fragrant.
  • Then add the carrots and cook till soft, followed by mushrooms. Add in the sauce ingredients and stir for another 2 minutes. 
  • Turn off the heat, lastly add in the chinese chives and mix well. Let it cool completely before using.

Making the boxes

  • Take out the dough from the bowl and knead for a few seconds.
  • Divide the dough into 24 pieces (about 40g per piece). Roll each piece into a circle (about 4 1/2 inch in diameter). Place the fillings in the middle and seal it in the same way as to fold a dumpling. Place the fold side down and gently patch it flat.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frying pan, place the fold side down and cover it. Cook with medium low heat. Flip the chives box until both side are golden brown.
  • Finally serve hot with chilli oil or your favourite sauce.
