1 pack each of the following Chinese balls: crab, cuttlefish, prawn, fish, tofufish "siomai" and dimsum or any other flavors you want

1 pack abalone or oyster mushroom,

1 pack round spinach

2 packs baby corn and 1 medium head broccoli,

1 pack of soup base for seafood hotpot

a bottle of lime chili sauce for dipping sauce

several cups of stock or water.


  • If you have eaten hot pot before then you know the process is fool proof and very easy. Arrange your cooking implement on the table.
  • If you have a hot pot and a single burner stove or better yet profane or portable butane fueled stove then it should not be difficult.
  • Alternately, you can also use electric or induction version cooker/hot pot or even rice cooker but boil the stock first in the oven for faster action.
  • Pour the stock or water in the hot pot and let to boil on medium heat. Add in seafood soup base and taste the broth.
  • Season it with salt and ground pepper, if still necessary. Add in different types of Chinese balls in batches, depending on the number of diners.
  • When the broth is boiling again and balls are partially cooked add the vegetables and noodles, also in batches.
  • Simmer until the balls and veggies are cooked through.
