I just caught this short video called The Expat Life: Dumpling 101 by the WSJ’s Alan Paul, who gets a lesson on how to make Chinese dumplings, or jiaozi, before he left China.
Do YOU know how to make jiaozi? When we made them in our household we used store-bought dumpling wrappers — jiaozi pi — and ground meat. Sometimes we even used the food processor to chop the veggies. Call us lazy, but my Mom didn’t see the point of chopping everything by hand if we didn’t have to.
(Here’s a pretty good jiaozi recipe with tips throughout. I like how every other line is a warning of something NOT to do, otherwise the jiaozi will fall apart or explode. But heed the advice; it’s absolutely true.)
