How to make dumplings;

Part 1 Making the Wrappers
1.Making the WrappersMix the flour, salt, and water in a large bowl. Mix the ingredients together until you make a nice, smooth dough. Use a wooden spoon to stir the ingredients together until they are fully incorporated.

2.Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. This can help the ingredients settle together. As you wait for the dough to rest, you can cover the bowl with cling wrap. You can start to make the filling for the dumplings while you wait.

3.Make each circular wrapper. Simply use your hand to pick up each piece of dough and pound it into the board to make a small circular disc. Then, use a rolling pin to smooth out each disc until it's about 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter. They don't have to all be exactly the same size, but it can help to get them as close to the same size as possible.

Part 2 Making the Filling

1.Shred the cabbage and put into a stainless pot. If you'd like to be extra thorough, then you can add a dash of salt to the cabbage and let it sit in a bowl for 10 minutes; this will allow the salt to soak up the excess moisture in the dumplings.

2.Mix the cabbage and minced meat together . Ground meat is meat finely chopped by a meat grinder. The process of mincing is usually done manually. Continue mixing the cabbage and meat together until they are thoroughly blended.

Part 3 Scoop the filling onto wrapper

1.Just use a spoon to scoop out 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture in the center of every wrapper.
2.Fold the sides of the wrapper together. You should wet the edge of each wrapper with a damp finger and then fold the sides together, crimping (pressing together) the dough with your fingers to seal the contents inside. To do this, first fold it in half and press together the top of the edge. Then press each side together, while crimping it. Simple mechanical "dumpling presses" are also available to simplify this process.
3.Place the wrapped dumplings on a floured surface. This will keep them from sticking to the surface and will make your dumplings ready to either boil or fry?it's your choice!

Part 4 Boiling the Dumplings

Put the dumplings in boiling water. To make sure that they are thoroughly cooked, one method used in China is the "3 boil" method. To do this, add the dumplings to boiling water, and return the water to a boil. Then, add 1 or 2 cups of water (it can be cold or at room temperature). Wait for it to boil the second time, then add water again. After the water boils the third time, your dumplings should be good to go.

Part 4 Enjoy delicious dumplings

Serve these tasty dumplings while they're warm. You can enjoy them with a dipping sauce of your choice.
