How to Make Dumplings

Dumplings are a kind of Chinese traditional food which is made of flour, water, vegetables, meat and many different kinds of spice, and they are popular with Chinese people. People like to eat dumplings as they are delicious and easy to make. In particular, people sometimes eat them for celebrating special festivals such as the Spring Festival, the Mid-Autumn Festival and many other festivals. In order to eat delicious dumplings, we may know how to make it at first. I often make dumplings with my family and I enjoy it very much. So let me introduce the method of making dumplings to you.

Firstly, prepare all the food materials sufficiently. Before making dumplings, the materials need to be prepared sufficiently. There are many necessary materials no matter what kind of dumplings we make, such as flour, water, bean oil, salt and pepper. What other materials we need depends on what kind of dumplings we want to eat. If someone wants to eat pork and chive dumplings, pork and chive also need to be prepared.

Secondly, make the dumpling wrappers. At first, put the flour into a basin and then add warm water into it. Mix them to form a large piece of dough and cover it with damp cloth. After about 20 minutes, cut the piece of dough into many pieces of small ones, and roll them into thin and round wrappers as far as possible with a rolling pin. In this way, the wrappers can be made out.

Thirdly, make the dumpling filling. I think this is the most important step. Different

Ultimately comes the step of making the whole dumplings. Put about a spoonful filling on the centre of the wrapper and fold two sides over to make sure the filling is covered inside. Then pinch the edges with your fingers so that the filling may not leak off.

Even though the above steps are not very exact, I hope with the help of them, you can make delicious dumplings for yourself and your family members. I often enjoy my family ’s eating dumplings by myself. If you master the skills about making dumplings, don’t wait and make them for your family.
