How to Make Sui Gow, Serunding and Fried Fish Balls

The original Live Asian Kitchen broadcast on which these recipes were based was unfortunately deleted (I didn’t realise that Twitch only kept the recordings for 2 months) so here’s a more recent episode, albeit one that only covers the Chicken Serunding (well, I also did chicken floss, but we won’t worry about that) recipe below –

Sui Gow


Filling –

  • 500g chicken mince
  • 250g fresh shelled prawns – minced
  • ½  can water chestnuts – drained & minced in a food processor
  • 1 stalk spring onion – sliced
  • 1 cup crispy fried shallots (commercial variety is fine)
  • 3 TBS chicken stock granules (I use Knorr)
  • 1 ½ TBS sesame oil
  • 1/2 TBS pepper
  • 1 egg

Pastry –

  • 2 pks wonton wrappers


  1. Mix the filling ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Separate the wonton wrappers gently, put one level teaspoon of filling in middle of pastry, then fold in half crossways to create a triangular shape.
  3. Squeeze the edges around the filling so it doesn’t fall apart when cooked.
  4. Line a tray with baking paper and arrange the dumplings so they don’t touch.  If not using straight away, freeze, then store in sealed containers in freezer until ready for use.

To Cook – 

Bring water to boil in a saucepan, then add dumplings and boil on medium heat until they float to the surface (about 4-5mins).  Serve in a clear broth with noodles or on a bed of blanched Chinese greens drizzled with oyster sauce.

OR – 

Deep-fry at 180°C for about 4-5mins until crispy.  Serve as a snack on its own or with a fish sauce/vinegar/sugar/sliced chilli dip.
