ABOUT THE RECIPE

You'll love the savory flavor of these crispy dumplings. Our filling is made with shiitake mushrooms, napa cabbage, ginger and garlic for a classic combination of flavors. After you assemble the dumplings—a fun family activity—a quick pan-fry is all they need to achieve the perfect, golden-brown exterior. Enjoy these traditional dumplings as an appetizer, entree or even dessert!

A NOTE ON MEASUREMENTS

We work with chefs from all around the world, which is why we include both imperial (cups/ounces) and metric (grams) measurements. To achieve best results, we highly recommend that you utilize a kitchen scale and follow the metric measurements when possible.

PREPARATION

DUMPLING SAUCE 

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk well. Store in the fridge (up to a week).


WRAPPERS

Mix flour and water in a bowl. Knead with your hand. When the ball is medium firm, let rest for 10-15 minutes, covered with a damp towel.


Make a loop / rope with the dough. Cut it into 16 equal sections. Press each section into a small disc with the palm of your hand. Using a rolling pin, flatten each dough into a thin disc.


DUMPLINGS

Prepare your filling by chopping cabbage, mushrooms, and ginger. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, ground pepper, and plant oil.


We will provide instructions on how to wrap during the virtual session.
