Yield: About 30 dumplings

- ½ pound potato starch*
- 2 pounds boiling hot water

- 2 ounces dried preserved mustard greens, minced*
- 1 ounce carrots, minced

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