  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    First, prepare the dumplings. To make the filling, place chicken, ginger, spring onions, fish sauce, and oyster sauce in a food processor. Process well.
  3. Step 3

    On a clean, dry working surface, spread out 6 wonton wrappers. Pour a little water into a bowl for dipping your fingers in, or a brush works well.
  4. Step 4

    Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the middle of each wrapper. Using your fingers or a brush, wet the outer edges of the first wrapper to make it stick.
  5. Step 5

    Place chicken broth in a soup pot over medium to high heat. Add lemongrass, soy sauce, and mushrooms. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Add dumplings to the chicken broth, plus the chili (if using). Boil for 5 minutes, or until dumplings are floating rather than sinking.
  7. Step 7

    Reduce the heat to low and add the cucumbers and lime juice. Taste test the soup for saltiness, adding up to 2 tablespoons fish sauce (instead of salt) as needed.
  8. Step 8

    To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Add a sprinkling of fresh coriander and fresh basil.
  9. Step 9

    Serve with more fresh-cut red chili or chili sauce on the side, if desired, and enjoy!
