Dumpling Wrappers Recipe

Serve: 30 wrappers
Rest Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Prep Time: 40 minutes

Dumpling dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour, and additional dusting
2/3 water (a little more or less depends on the humidity level)
1/3 teaspoon salt

To make the dumpling dough

We are going to make 1 piece of dough, and make 3 different types of wrappers from it.

In a large mixing bowl, add in the flour.

In another container, add in the water and salt. Mix well.

Pour the water mixture into the flour. Mix with your chopsticks until the dough becomes flaky. Then knead until it becomes a dough, 5 minutes. Wrap with a plastic wrap. Rest 30 minutes.

Knead again until it becomes smooth, 3 minutes. Wrap with the plastic wrap. Rest for 1 hour.

Cut the dough in halves. Place the first piece of dough in a plastic wrap.

To work on the other piece of dough, first, dust flour on the working surface.

Roll the dough into a cylinder shape. Cut it into 1-inch pieces.

1. Roll and turn method

Pat the dough into a disk. Your left hand holds on to the dough and turns the dough. Your middle finger constantly stays in the middle part. Your right hand rolls the rolling pin over the dough. It mostly never touches the middle part. Continue until it becomes thin and has about 3 inches in diameter.

Dust flour over the dough to prevent them from sticking together.

Cover the wrappers with a plastic wrap.

Do the same for the rest of the dough.

2. Regular rolling method

Pat the dough into a disk. Use a rolling pin to roll it into a round sheet, about 3 inches in diameter.

Dust flour over the dough to prevent them from sticking together.

Cover the wrappers with a plastic wrap.

Do the same for the rest of the dough.

3. Cookie-cutter method

Dust flour on the working surface.

Take out the other dough. Pat the dough with your hands first. Then use a rolling pin to roll into a large and thin sheet, about 18 inches in diameter.

Use a cookie cutter or anything round in your kitchen to cut it into round sheets.

Cover the wrappers with a plastic wrap.

Do the same for the rest of the dough.
