dumpling is a traditional chinese food. on the lunar new year s day, most families make a lot of delicious dumplings. to make them, follow this easy process.
the first step is to mix the flour with water. when the dough is ready, we can begin to make dumpling wrappers. we use a rolling pole to roll the dough into small, thin and round pieces so that they will be easy to cook. when the wrappers are done, it s time to prepare the filling. usually, we use meat such as beef or mutton, and some vegetables such as cabbage or carrots for filling. you may actually choose whatever you like to put into it. we must chop those things into small pieces. then put some salt, oil and other condiments into it and stir it evenly. when all these preparations are done, we can start making dumplings. first put a spoonful of filling in the center of the wrapper. then stick the two opposite sides together and then the rest. don t just cover the filling with the wrappers. the best shape of dumplings is that of a ship, because when they are boiling in the pan, they look like ships sailing in the sea. the smell can make your mouth water.
