  • 2 stalks spring onions, chopped finely


  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • ½ cup oil

For the pastry:

  • 285 g wheat starch (tang mein flour)

  • 60 ml oil
  • 3 cups hot boiling water
  • ½ tsp salt

To make the pastry:

  1. Combine flour and salt. Pour boiling water into flour. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
