Omelette Dumplings - Wrapped # 2

Recipe recreated in Aug 2011

My mom used to have these when she was a kid. She recalled grandma will actually simmer them in water to make sure these are thoroughly cooked.

My mom is the type that once she cooks a dish, she repeats it at least once a week, until one day she gets sick of it and then it goes extinct. LOL.

It's been almost 20 years since I've seen her making this.

Omelette Dumplings
Recipe source: WendyinKK

Egg Mixture
3 large eggs
1/3 tsp salt
Dash of pepper

100gm minced meat (can have a mixture of prawn, pork or chicken)
1 Tbsp chopped spring onion (can add some chopped carrots and waterchestnut too)
½ Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp water
¼ tsp salt
1/3 tsp sugar
Dash of pepper

1. Beat eggs with salt and pepper.
2. Combine ingredients for filling. Separate filling into 10 portions, roll and slightly flatten.
3. Heat wok (wok preferred due to the curved base). Turn to low heat and put in 1 tsp of oil.
4. Put in 1 Chinese soup spoon of egg into the center of the wok. No need to spread it around, the oil will help spread the egg.
5. Put in one portion of meat and fold the omelette into half to cover the meat. Gently press the dumpling with the back of spatula.
6. Fry until both sides are golden. Don’t be tempted to use high heat. Stay low all the time.
7. Repeat step 4-6 until all fillings are used up.


  1. Dear Wendy,

    This one is easy meal for me to know la, i'm such a "freshie" in kitchen..will try this meal..thanks for sharing!!

  2. Hi Wendy, I love this very appetizing dish. I usually use mackerel fish paste and simmer in water.

    But your look great. Lovely presentation.

    Have a nice day.

  3. it also my mother favorite dish....she say she learn from my grandmother..

  4. That looks like an easy but delicious dish to make. My Mum also like to repeat dishes but hers never go extinct because she rotate the same five dishes. Hah! Hah! Hah!

  5. This reminds me of my fond memory when I was young. My mum used to cook this very often but she made it smaller like the shape of jiao zi.

  6. We never had this on the table before :O Interesting omelette dumpling~

    Er, so you didn't simmer the patty first? It'll still cook thoroughly, right?

  7. yummy and easy...thanks for sharing wendy...
    this evening i want to try lah for dinner... :)

  8. I've never had this before. It is something new to me though it is easy to make. The mince meat/pork would surely cooked in it?

  9. My mum does the same thing your mum does. My mother fried them in bigger pieces to serve with rice or porridge. I kept her recipe in my blog too. Afraid it might really go extinct.

  10. Wow...looks delicious. I think I will make this for WB on my lazy day...hahaha meat in omelette. I just cook shrooms omelette for him and yours came just in time for the next round of omelette ! LOL! Thanks Thanks Thanks ! I like being lazy for a while...* wink

  11. Oh I tried this before and learnt to cooked from my neighbour when I was small. Must bookmark this..Tq

  12. Patricia,
    If you have a flat based wok for ur induction cooker, I don't know whether this technique will work for u.


    Sounds good too, add some spring onion and it becomes soup!

    Yup, an old fashioned dish!

    Phong Hong,
    Hahaha, mothers... haha!

    Wah, so small, must be lots of work.

    No simmering. If you used low heat to slowly cook it, no need to simmer. My mom uses medium heat, and quickly flip the egg, so inside is still raw.

    Hope u like this

    Mine was cooked, just use low heat all the time.

    Oh yeah, nowadays many recipes do follow the ancestors... sad hoh

    Later u become omelette faced la, LOL.

    Kids should love this, try la

    Belly Good Cooking,

    1. Yes Wendy, each dumpling only add one tbsp of minced meat. I shall ask my mum to make again, I don't have the patience. :p

  13. Hi wendy i never had this before.. tq for sharing.. will try this recipe soon.. ;)

  14. This is like minced meat eggs in another whole new form! Love the idea. ;)

  15. wow this is such a good idea! I never thought of using omelettes as dumpling skins! much simpler than making dough too!

  16. that's a quick and easy way to enjoy 'dumplings'! haha! your mum must be so sick making this everyday then till now 20 years after, never cooked!!LOL!

  17. I haven't seen this kind of dumplings before, how come my mom didn't cook this before har? Maybe I cook for her instead, she'll loves these especially the meat inside.

  18. Ya, Wendy I used to have it when i was a kid also. My grandma always cooked it and serve with hot porridge. One of my favourite dishes :)


  19. Angel,
    Oh, then I think mine is smaller, it's less than 1 Tbsp of meat, 10gm each only.
    Learn it one day, it's not too hard.

  20. Hai wendy,this is something for me.Will sure make this.

  21. Idea leh!!! I'm gonna make this one day!!! :D

  22. My mum is 75 years old and she still cook this dish. I am lucky that I still have my mum home cook food since I am married and have two grown up young adults. This is our family favourite dish. Very sedap!

  23. This is making me drool... my mum also used to make such omelette with french beans, chinese mushrooms and prawns as the fillings. Yum too! Although it seems easy, but when I made it, I can't get a decent half circle omelette probably cos I'm too greedy with the ingredients, hence everything spills out hence i can't seal the egg properly. :P

    I will kiv this dish or ask my mum to make too!.

  24. Dear Wendy,

    Yeah...i made this omelette with carrot mince meat add some parsley...yummy yummy...taste so good!! thanks for the method to cook this!


  25. Ah this looks good.. I wonder if you use those ready to eat type of crepe skin if it'd work as well :)

  26. Open Kitchen Concept,
    then... it won't like egg, right?

  27. Hi Wendy,
    It's me again!
    I had some fish paste and minced chicken left over and decided to try this recipe o your this evening.
    I added diced carrots and some chopped vege aka cai con. And it was nice with a surprise inside for my kid. I used a frying pan instead of a wok and indeed as you had mentioned above, wok is better to do this dish. Thankfully i managed to get one nicely wrapped with the omelette. :)
