Golden Pouch Dumplings with Pad Thai Sauce

Golden Pouch Dumplings | WATCHAREE'S
During the Lunar New Year, the Chinese celebrate with steamed money bag dumplings, which we call golden pouches in Thai, to bring good fortune and prosperity. A deep-fried savory delight, this savory appetizer is also served during special or auspicious occasions such as weddings. It is also part of Thai Royal Cuisine and served in the palace as an afternoon snack.
We cook our golden pouches in an air fryer, so the are light and crispy.
1 package frozen spring roll pastry (size 4.5” x 4.5” - 25 sheets)
1 container of fresh crabmeat (6 oz)
3/4 cup fresh shrimp, chopped into small pieces
1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, diced into small pieces
1 cup carrots, diced into small cubes
1 tbs ginger, diced into small cubes
2 tbs oil
1 tbs light soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp white pepper
25 chives
1/4 cup WATCHAREE’S pad Thai sauce
Phillips Airfryer (optional)
Oil sprayer (optional)
Let the frozen spring roll pastry stand at room temperature until soft. To make filling, heat oil in a wok and stir fry shrimp until cooked for about 2 minutes. Add shiitake mushrooms, carrots and ginger, and cook until the vegetables are soft for about 2-3 minutes. Add soy sauce, sugar and white pepper and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the filling mixture into the center of the spring roll pastry and gather the four corners to form a pouch. Tie each pouch with a chive. Set the temperature on the Phillips Airfryer to 350°F. Spray the pouches with oil and place in the basket inside and fry for 7 minutes. Remove and serve with WATCHAREEE’S pad Thai sauce as a dipping sauce. Alternatively, deep fry the pouches in oil at medium high heat until golden brown.
Serve as appetizers.
