Steamed Chinese Dumplings & Dipping Sauce (serves 4)
Preparation time for this recipe is about 1 1/2 hours. However, dumpling filling and dipping sauce can be made ahead of time.
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup cold water
6 oz. boiling water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbs. all purpose flour
Divide the flour into two separate bowls. In the first bowl, add 1/4 cup of cold water and mix with a spoon until a dough forms. In the second bowl, add the 6 oz. of boiling water and mix with a spoon until a dough forms.
Place 1 tbs. of additional flour on a work surface. Remove the dough from the bowls and knead them together on the floured work surface for 10 minutes. Form the dough into a ball and then cover with a dry cloth and allow it to rest for 1 hour.
Divide the dough into 24 evenly sized pieces by cutting the dough ball into 1/8's. Roll the pieces into a log and cut it into three, then roll the dough into little balls (use additional flour if necessary). In the palm of your hand, flatten the dough into 3 1/2 inch circles.
Chinese Dumpling Filling
1 lb. ground pork or ground turkey
3 tbs. minced scallion
1/2 tsp. grated ginger
1 1/2 tsp. dry sherry
1 tbs. soy sauce
1 tbs. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. salt
In a medium sized bowl, combine the ground pork or ground turkey, minced scallion, grated ginger, dry sherry, soy sauce, sesame oil and salt thoroughly. Using the Potsticker dough circles, place 1 tbs. of meat filling in the middle.
Fold the dough circle in half over the filling to make a half moon shape. Press the edges together to seal the dumpling. Turn the dumpling so the straight edge is facing you.
Fold the two corners located at 9 and 3 o'clock to the center at 12 o'clock and press the dough to seal. Cook the dumplings in two batches in boiling water for 6 minutes. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon. Serve with oriental dipping sauce.
Oriental Dipping Sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbs. sesame oil
1 tbs. minced scallions
1 tsp. minced garlic
Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, minced scallions and minced garlic together and mix thoroughly. Place the dipping sauce into a serving dish.
Drizzle the dipping sauce over the hot steamed dumplings before serving.
Good Luck and Happy Eating !!!

Thai-Style Steamed Dumplings with Coriander Dipping Sauce Recipe courtesy Gourmet Magazine
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Yield: 12 servings
For the filling:
1/4 cup minced scallion
1 pound ground pork
2 teaspoons minced peeled fresh ginger
1 red bell pepper, minced (about 1/2 cup)
2/3 cup minced cabbage
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
1 large egg, beaten lightly
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
60 shao mai wrappers (round wrappers), see note, thawed, if frozen
Cornstarch, for dusting the baking sheet
Make the filling: In a bowl, combine well the scallion, the pork, the ginger, the bell pepper, the cabbage, the garlic, the oil, the soy sauce, the coriander, the egg, and salt and pepper, to taste, and chill the filling for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Put about 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling in the center of 1 of the wrappers and moisten the edge of the wrapper. Gather the edge of the wrapper up and around the filling and form a waist with the wrapper, pushing the dumpling from the bottom and keeping the filling level with the top of the wrapper. (The filling should not be enclosed.) Continue to make dumplings with the remaining wrappers and filling in the same manner and arrange them in 1 layer on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper dusted lightly with the cornstarch. (The dumplings may be prepared up to this point 8 hours in advance and kept uncovered and chilled or 1 month in advance and kept covered tightly and frozen. If the dumplings are frozen, do not thaw them in advance.)
In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it fry half the dumplings, flat sides down, over moderately high heat for 1 minute, or until the undersides are golden. Add 1/2 cup water and steam the dumplings, covered, over moderate heat for 3 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. (If using frozen dumplings, fry them, frozen, for 1 minute, or until the undersides are golden, and steam them, adding 3/4 cup water per batch, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through.) Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet and cook the remaining dumplings in the same manner. Garnish the dumplings with the coriander sprigs and serve them with the sauce.
For the sauce:
1 tablespoon nam pla, see cook's note
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon shredded fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Coriander sprigs, for garnish
Cook's note: available at East and Southeast Asian markets, specialty foods shops, and many supermarkets
Make the sauce: In a bowl whisk together the nam pla, the lime juice, the vinegar, the sugar, the gingerroot, the mint, the coriander, salt and pepper, to taste.

Add small amount of pork filling into your wrapper, then brush the edges of the wrapper with the egg wash, and fold the wrapper over the filling. Seal the wrapper with your fingers (the egg wash acts as glue).
Then steam them....Source(s): My own recipe; been using this for years.
