How to make Lazy Dumplings for Breakfast

    1. Placed the black fungus into a bowl with water together with salt and cornstarch. Soak it for 30 minutes to let it remove dust and dirt. The black fungus will turn bigger and softer. Chopped into small pieces.
    1. Chopped the spring onion and coriander leaves, set aside. Cut the prawns into small pieces.
    1. Heat some oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour in the beaten eggs. Let the eggs set around the edges then gently push the set to one side and let the unset egg run into the pan. Cook until the egg is just cooked through. Break it into small pieces with the spatula. Set it aside.
    1. Combine the ground pork, prawns, black fungus, egg, spring onion and coriander leaves into a mixing bowl. Add in the marinade sauce, stir well until all the ingredients are well combined.
    1. Enlarge the dumplings with the rolling pin a litter bigger and thinner.
    1. Placed the prepared filling on the middle of the dumpling wrapper. Brush some water on the top half. Fold from the bottom half to the filling and roll up to seal it with the top half. Slightly pressed both sides to avoid filling leak out. Repeat the same until all complete.
