1 tsp salt
1½ tsp sugar
1 tbsp cooking oil
Dash of sesame oil & pepper

1. Combine all ingredients and seasonings in a mixing bowl. Stir in 1 direction until well combined.
2. Cover the bowl with clip wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. Spoon out approx 1 tbsp of mixture, put on the dumpling skin.
4. Dip some water at the side of the dumpling and press firmly. Set aside.
5. Boil water in a large cooking pot. When the water is boiling, add in the dumplings.

    I guess you like chinese dumplings a lot. Saw a few posts regarding this. I like chinese dumplings too! But after I came to Norway, I couldn’t find the dumpling skins but to make my own. I would recommend you to do it yourself cos it is totally different from those commercial dumpling skins. You control the thickness, of course, decide the chewiness as well. Normal dough, porridge dough etc all give different taste and chewiness.

    Chinese dumplings are just so good!
