Delicious dumplings

You have the rolled-out dough and you have the dumpling fillings. It’s time to wrap the dumplings and cook it. Soon you are going to enjoy your home-made Chinese dumplings. You don’t have to run to Chinese takeaways or eat out at Chinese restaurants anymore which are expensive and most likely has MSG added to it.

Just follow the pictures. You may find wrapping it a little difficult but after a while you’ll find it easy. Remember, ‘Practice makes perfect’. Just keep learning and keep smiling.

Put 1 tablespoon oil into the non-stick pan. Make and arrange the dumplings onto the pan. When it’s filled up, fry it over medium fire. After a while, turn one up to check if it’s brown on the bottom. If it is, pour in 1/4 C of water and cover to steam-fry. When the water dries up, pour in another 1/4 cup of water and cover to steam-fry again. When the water dries up, the dumplings are cooked. Put a big plate over the pan and flip over so that the bottom of the dumplings are facing up like in the picture below.

That’s it. Time to relax and enjoy the hot Chinese dumplings, served with sauce of your choice. I was actually enjoying Venus and Serena Williams playing doubles in the Wimbleton Tennis while making the dumplings. The game was not over yet when my dumplings were cooked so we had a double joy¬† - enjoying our hot dumplings while watching the tennis game!

These are the best dumplings I have ever eaten and ever made! I had some friends over for dinner and made these as well and they loved it! Thanks for posting and keep those recipes coming. I’ve subscribed to your blog so I hope to learn more.

Those dumplings look so delicious! I cannot wait to try the recipe out! Homemade dumplings are always tastier and healthier than ones from takeaways, which are usually full of msg and artificial flavouring. Keep posting lots of pictures of the amazing food!

You sure make it so sound so easy. I might want to try making them. Will cheat a bit by buying the wanton wrap from the market which is easily available here in K.L. Btw I enjoy reading your blog.

@Debbie - Thanks very much for visiting and lovely comment, Debbie! Lovely to know you are from KL. Yes, everything is so convenient there….how jealous I am :P

Hi Mary, i wish to try this delicious dumplings for my kids at home :) can i use the stainless steel wok instead of non-stick pan?

Mary  on October 11th, 2011

@Natalie - I’m sure you can use a stainless steel pan. But then I think you need to heat it up first, add some oil and place the dumplings in so that they don’t stick. Whereas for a non-stick pan, you can arrange all the dumplings in the pan first and then turn on the fire to cook. Have fun making dumplings! :D

Hi Mary -
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I just made these and they were great! We are unexpectedly home for Christmas evening because we are snowed (in Texas!) and I was able to make these with shrimp from my freezer. A nice treat on a cold day.

Mary  on December 26th, 2012

@Carla - You are most welcome, Carla! What a treat for Christmas day! I’m really glad to know that you liked it. It’s quite a while I have not cooked that. I must cook again soon. It’s been very cold here but no snow….a little disappointed. Hope you have a most wonderful Christmas and New Year! :D
