  • 1/4 red cabbage, finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, grated
  • 8 mushrooms, diced
  • 2 Tbsp + 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Anathoth Farm Hot Chilli Relish or Sweet Chilli Relish (to your preference)
  • 2 Tbsp tamari
  • salt to taste
  • 1 300g packet of dumpling wrappers (pastry)
  • water, for dampening


  1. Prepare cabbage, carrot and mushrooms, then heat a fry pan and add 2 Tbsp olive oil.
  2. Add minced garlic to the frypan and cook for 1 minute, then add the rest of the veggies and saute for 5 minutes. 
  3. Add your choice of Anathoth Farm Chilli Relish, tamari and salt to taste. Cook for further 2 minutes until the mixture is sticky and cooked completely.
  4. Take dumpling wrappers and place on a floured bench-top. Place a teaspoon of mixture in the centre of each wrapper. Wet fingers with water and dampen the outer edge of the dumpling round. Fold in half and crimp edges to form a half-circle.
  5. Repeat until all mixture is used up.
  6. Place 1/4 cup sesame oil in a frypan and once hot, add dumplings in groups of 6-8 (based on the size of your frypan). Shallow fry for 3-4 minutes each side.
  7. Once cooked, place dumplings on a paper towel to drain. Repeat until all dumplings are cooked.
  8. Serve with a dipping sauce and side salad. YUM!
