Really enjoyed them. Pretty simple. Would give 5 stars but couldn’t make the dough recipe work. So bought wonton wrappers and it worked great.
I was trying to surprise my girlfriend for Lunar New Year, first time making dumplings. I followed this to the letter, oz and ml like I was doing a chemistry experiment in university. The stuffing smells amazing but the wrap... it turned out so sticky I could use it to waterproof a ship or hang wallpaper! Is this how it’s supposed to be? I waited 2 hours and tried adding more flower but it’s still crazy sticky.
Never mind, I figured it out. And now I can’t delete the post. Way to much water
The recipe could not have been easier to follow, and the taste was so fresh and authentic, these were hard to beat. We used won ton wrappers to skip a few steps. Yum yum yum!
This is so easy a child could do it with clear, concise instructions. I've been making dumplings for years now and this is just me reading the recipe and agreeing with any and all techniques.
Not sure why this rates low...oh wait...its from some crusty who didn't have some flour and water on hand, complained about it into the air, decided to post it in the open---and when all else failed, pulled the race card. Bravo. Food cost for flour and water clearly the difference in making soft pliable dough and paying 4 dollars for something that is iffy at its best. I wish him the best in his miserable existence.
The recipe is solid, but the presentation is loaded with rookie mistakes. One cannot pleat dumplings with super-dry, store-bought wrappers (previously frozen?) that behave like potato chips. The demonstration, however sincere, simply did not work for that reason.
The recipe? Loaded with typos. Folks, either an editor or IT person needs a spanking. The presenter/editor neither gave correct cantonese and mandarin pinyin in the recipe nor in the video. This is how gringos like me get the right stuff in Chinatown - by asking for it by name. The name AND characters of the dish as well as the Chinese-specific ingredients must be given. Otherwise failure is probable. And, many ABCs (American-born Chinese) do not read or write, only speak. I've been shopping in Boston's Chinatown over 60 years. I know what does and doesn't work. PLEASE DO NOT PUBLISH THIS! This is criticism, not a review. I figured that this is more direct and quicker than email.
