  2. Take a wonton wrapper and place a spoonful of the filling mixture in the center.
  3. Wet the edges of the wonton wrapper with water.
  4. Gather the edges of the wrapper, pleating them together to form a cup-like shape with the filling exposed on top. Press the edges firmly to seal the dumpling.

  6. Place the dumplings on a steamer lined with parchment paper or cabbage leaves to prevent sticking.

  8. Once cooked, remove the dumplings from the steamer and serve hot.
  9. Sui Mai can be served with soy sauce or a dipping sauce of your choice.
