      abbot’s delight dumplings
Chef Ming Liu of Dim Sum GOGO – New York, NY
Adapted by StarChefs

Yield: About 30 dumplings

Ingredients:

    Dough
  • 1 pound wheat starch*
  • ½ pound potato starch*
  • 2 pounds boiling hot water

  • Filling
  • ½ pound dried turnip, minced*
  • 2 ounces dried preserved mustard greens, minced*
  • 1 ounce carrots, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon sugar
  • 4 ounces potato starch*
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

    * These items can be found at Chinese markets or specialty food stores.

Method:

For dough:
In large bowl, mix together wheat and potato starches. Add boiling water; mix completely until dough forms. Work dough into a ball. Divide dough into three equal pieces; wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least a half hour. Roll out one piece of dough on a lightly floured surface, until it is paper thin. Use a 2-3 inch cookie or biscuit cutter to cut approximately 10 dumpling skins. Repeat with remaining two sections of dough.

For filling:
Parboil turnips, mustard greens, and carrots in water until slightly softened, but not fully cooked, about 1 minute. Strain vegetables and place in large bowl; cool. Add salt and sugar to vegetable mixture. Gradually add potato starch, mixing it in thoroughly. Add the sesame oil.

Assembly:
Place a heaping teaspoon of vegetable filling onto center of one dumpling skin. Gather edges of dumpling skin to center and pinch together to seal. Alternatively, you can place filling on half of the dumpling skin and fold over to create a moon shape. If necessary, dab edges of skin with water to help form seal. Repeat until all dumpling skins are filled.
