Mix the pork, black fungus, shallots, garlic, chili, coriander, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Heat the oil in a wok and stir fry the pork mixture for about 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Allow to cool.
Mix together the corn flour and water in a bowl, adding a little more water if needed.
With your finger, paint some of the corn flour mixture around the edge of a wonton wrapper.
Put a teaspoonful of the pork mixture on the wrapper in a sausage shape.
Roll up the wrapper, pressing the edges together. Continue until all the filling is used up.
Steam or gently boil the dumplings for 5-6 minutes and then serve.
Garnished with the shallots and cucumber stick and with the dipping sauce.
