Description of Dish:

Thin circular shaped ‘wrappers’ are made of flour (there are debates going on as to exactly what flour is used). The wrappers are then filled with almost any ‘filling’ and pinched at the end. The fillings range from just egg to egg and prawns or egg and vegetable, vegetables and meat. The list is endless as there are so many variations. Once the wrappers are filled with their filling, they are then frozen in the freezer and/or some are boiled in water for about five – ten minutes and served hot with a choice of sauces and a pair of chopsticks. All that is required are hungry tummies!
