Got a Chinese food craving, part 2


After talking about how I would learn to make Chinese food, these gorgeous pork-and-shrimp dumplings came out of our kitchen this weekend. From scratch. After lots of hard work and salivating. In the end, all our slave work – chopping everything to a mince, forming the dough into circles 50 times, filling the dough 50 times, closing the dumplings 50 times, boiling everything 3 times in 3 batches – was all worth it. They were so delicious it was hard to believe we we actually made them! I love you, Linlin's cookbook! I wonder though... is there a machine for all this work?

Hej Sapphire! Great to see another new soul here!

Yes. Actually, the dough is the easiest part. It's just dough and water kneaded like bread dough for 5 minutes! The part I would rather avoid is stuffing the dumplings. Too monotonous! :-P
