Here's a peak into the process!
Li and Juheng make the dumpling dough by mixing together bread flour and water (approx 1 cup water per 3 cups of flour) and then kneading it until smooth. Then Li used the pastry machine to press out the dough (but you can use a rolling pin as well). Then the dough is cut into thin circles approximately 3 inches in diameter.
The filling we used was half ground veal and half green onion (plus some added salt). We also had a filling of ground turkey with chopped up celery.
To cook them, we placed the dumplings gently in a pot of boiling water and stirred carefully. Wait until the water returns to a boil and then add approx 1 1/2 cups of cool water to the pot. Repeat this process 2 more times, and then remove the dumplings from the boiling water.

Isn't that fun? We had such a blast.
