    Pour oil into a wok or heavy-based saucepan to 5cm deep. Heat over high heat (oil is ready when a cube of bread crisps quickly without absorbing oil). Deep-fry dim sims, in batches, for 2 minutes or until golden brown and cooked. Use a metal slotted spoon to transfer to a heatproof plate lined with paper towels. Serve dim sims with extra plum sauce.


Add 1 teaspoon of finely grated fresh ginger or sesame oil to mince if you like.
