Before you know it, the Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day will be here- on the same day this year!! How rare is that? I don't recall one as long as I can remember!
Anyhow I thought maybe I will show a few variations of Chinese dumpling (sorry no Valentine's food from me). Startng with 3 cups of all-purpose flour, add 1/2 cup of hot water (this is very rough measurement, I don't measure any more)...put it in the mixer and there you have it-DOUGH!
then you roll them, knead them and now cut them into pieces
Does that look like fun or what? Now fill them up with ground pork, green onions, Chinese cabbage
Seal the edges (with love!) and you have one dumpling and many...
You can fry them, boil them, or like I did here, steam them.
So what do you think?
If all of the above is too much work for you, here's the alternative. Buy the read-made wrapping...it's easy! Just wrap them up and they are just as good--well, not quite, but almost.
These came in frozen packs! All you need to do is fry them in a bit of oil, water...there you have it! I tend to do this -A LOT! It's the Chinese fast food in my house!
Do you like what you see? Happy Chinese New Year (and Happy Valentine's Day, too)!
