Fun goris a kind of morning tea that is especially loved by Cantonese people. It is available in the morning and afternoon tea markets of almost all major tea markets and restaurants. Especially the older generation of Cantonese like it even more, and there can be many changes in various fillings.
Prepare the above-mentioned ingredients, soak the dried shiitake mushrooms until soft, chop the carrots and dried radish into small pieces, and wash and dry the chives.
First, pour the prepared hot water into a container with 100 grams of shrimp dumpling flour, and quickly mix with chopsticks until it reaches the state shown in the picture.
While the dough is still hot, pour in another portion of 150g shrimp dumpling powder, knead it into a smooth and stretchable dough, cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for a while.
Finely chop the leeks.
Put oil in a hot pan, first put the minced meat into the pan and stir-fry.
Then pour in shiitake mushrooms, carrots, dried radish and peas, and stir fry evenly over medium heat.
Finally, add the chopped leeks, stir fry quickly and evenly add a little salt, and then serve it out.
Scoop out the cooked filling and let it cool.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, and use a circular mold (I used the mouth of a glass) to lightly press out circular dough pieces.
Put in an appropriate amount of cooked filling.
Wrap it well, put it in the steamer, and steam for 4-5 minutes on medium-low heat.
The picture above is the final product.
Authentic fun gor must have peanuts in the filling, I don’t think the taste matches well so I didn’t put it in. If you like to add peanuts, you can also chop peanuts and add them to the filling.
