A simple recipe to make dumpling

I found a recipe to make Chinese dumpling. Hope it can help people who really like it.

Home-made dumpling is always better than the one in super market.

Details of making Chinese dumplings:

I have put together a list of recipes of Chinese dumpling.

*1 lb. ground pork (or beef)
*6 T. sesame oil
*2 t. sugar
*0.75 t. salt
*0.25 t. pepper
*0.25 lb. cabbage
*1 t. salt
*0.25 lb. chopped green onions
*3 c. flour
*0.75 c. cold water
*0.5 c. flour (to prevent sticking during kneading)
soy sauce
vinegar (white or rice)
garlic (fresh, chopped fine, or powdered)
ginger (fresh, chopped fine, or powdered)
small bowl with water for dipping

Procedures of making Chinese dumplings

1. Filling: Mix ground pork, oil, sugar, chop cabbagesalt and pepper until fine. Let sit for 10 minutes; then squeeze out the excess water.
2. Skin: In a bowl, add water to the flour and knead into smooth dough; let it stand for 10 minutes. Roll the dough into a long baton-like roll and cut it into 50 pieces. Use a rolling pin to roll each piece to a thin circle.
3. Combine: Place 1 portion of filling in the center of a dough circle. Fold the circle in half and moisten the edges with water. Use index finger and thumb to bring the sides together. The smooth edge will conform to the decreased length of the pleated edge. Pinch the pleats together then pinch to seal. Place the dumpling on a floured tray and repeat this with the remaining dumplings.
4. Boil: Boil 10 cups of water and add dumplings; gently stir to prevent dumplings from sticking together. Bring to a boil; turn the heat to low and cook for three minutes. When serving, use vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, hot bean paste, etc. as dipping sauces.
5. Serving: Serve the dumplings hot (if you cook them in bamboo baskets you may wish to serve them from it directly at the table) with bowls of soy sauce mixed with red wine vinegar.

I tried the recipe. But the result was not as good as I expected. It's not easy to make delicious food based on only a recipe. I think I have to practice it a lot.

Thanks for the recipe anyway.
