  1. In a large bowl, combine the pork, watercress, water chestnuts, spring onion, oyster sauce, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, white pepper and salt and mix together well.
  2. Place 1/2 teaspoonful of filling onto each wrapper. Place 1 prawn on the filling, slightly wet the edge of the wrapper, fold over and pinch with your fingers to form a tight seal all the way around. Ensure no air is trapped inside the sealed wrapper.
  3. To cook: Pan fry the dumplings in a large frying pan over medium heat with a little oil for 15 minutes, turning over halfway through. Or, place them in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes; drain and serve in hot chicken stock.
