How to Fold Dumplings

Don’t worry, it’s not as hard as it looks! There are several different ways to fold dumplings, but I’ll show you two of my favorite.

The Easiest Way to Fold Dumplings

Place a spoonful of your filling in the center of the dumpling wrapper. Use your finger to wet the edges/circumference of the dumpling wrapper with water. Then bring up all of the outside edges to meet in the middle like a parcel. Pinch at the top.

The Best Way to Fold Dumplings

The easiest way isn’t always the best. This way is better because it holds together more effectively so none of that delicious filling escapes. Start at above with the filling in the center of the circle and by wetting the outside edges. Next, fold the wrapper in half. Start folding over the edges and crimping by folding back on each fold.

Ingredients
Dumplings
Dipping Sauce
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onions, ginger and garlic until all of the liquid has evaporated. Allow the mixture to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the chicken and mushroom mixture with the soy sauce. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of filling into the center of each wrapper. Wet the edges with water using your fingers and fold into dumplings.
  3. To steam: line your bamboo steamer with parchment paper. Put some water in a pot or skillet that fits under your steamer and bring to a boil. Steam the dumplings for about 10 minutes.
  4. To fry: Heat a large skillet over medium-high and spray with avocado oil. Fill with the dumplings in a single layer. Brown the dumplings on both sides and then add ¼ cup water and cover to steam. Once the water has evaporated, remove the dumplings and let them cool. 

  5. To make the dipping sauce, combine the ingredients in a small bowl. Enjoy!
