4. Mix evenly the chinese chives, prawn/pork, sesame oil, oyster sauce, light soya sauce, pepper and salt in a bowl.

5. Add in 2 tbsp cooking oil to knead the dough when it is slightly cool . The dough has to be very sticky, i.e , sticking to your hands.

6. Put some flour on your palms ( avoid sticking ) and divide the dough into 25 pcs.
7. Take a piece of the dough and roll on your palm to form a ball. Press to flatten the ball to a thin round shape skin.
