    Add cornflour to the remaining sweet and sour sauce, mix well so that there are no lumps. Add this to pork mixture and cook until thickened.

    To make dough, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl and stir well to combine.

No need to worry if it doesn’t look perfect as it will change shape when steamed. Place onto a square of lightly oiled baking paper. Repeat with remaining mixture.
