How to make Chinese Shrimp Potsticker Dumplings

  1. For the dough, place the flour into a large bowl and stir in the hot water gradually, mixing all the time, until the water is incorporated.

  2. Tip the dough mixture onto a clean work surface and knead it with your hands, dusting the dough with a little flour if it's sticky. Continue kneading until smooth—this should take about eight minutes, then allow to rest for 20 minutes.

  3. For the stuffing, while the dough is resting, combine the stuffing ingredients in a large bowl and mix them together thoroughly.

  4. Shape the dough into a roll about 8 inches long and 1 inch in diameter. Then with a sharp knife, slice the roll into 16 equal-sized pieces and roll each piece into a small ball. With a rolling pin, roll each ball into a small, round, flat “pancake”—about 3½ inches in diameter.

  5. Place about two teaspoons of filling in the center of each “pancake” and moisten the edges with water. Fold the dough in half and pinch together with your fingers.

  6. Pleat around the edge, pinching with your fingers to seal well. The dumplings should look like a small calzone with a flat base and rounded top.

  7. To cook, steam in a basket for about 8 minutes. Alternatively, they can be fried. For the dipping sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
