  • 1.

    Combine mince, garlic, ginger, water chestnuts, half the chilli, half the shallots and 2 teaspoons soy sauce in a medium bowl. Arrange wonton wrappers on a work bench. Place a heaped teaspoon of mince mixture in the centre of each wonton wrapper and brush edges with a little water. Gather edges around filling to enclose and pinch together to seal.

  • 2.

    Bring stock, sliced garlic and ginger, fish sauce, lime juice, remaining soy sauce and 2 cups (500ml) water to the boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove and discard garlic and ginger. Add wontons and cook for 2 minutes, then add choy sum and cook for 2–3 minutes or until wontons are cooked through and choy sum is just tender.

  • 3.

    Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken dumplings and choy sum into serving bowls. Ladle broth into bowls and serve topped with fresh bean sprouts, coriander leaves and remaining chopped chilli and shallots.
