  1. Combine pork, onion, cilantro, red pepper flakes, red curry paste, garam masala, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder in a bowl. Mix well, then set aside. Place flour into a separate bowl. Slowly stir in the water as needed until a soft dough is achieved. There may be some water left over. Roll out walnut-sized balls of dough into thin circles.
  2. Fill each of the wrappers with about 1 tablespoon of the pork mixture. Moisten the edges of the wrapper, then fold in half, sealing to create a half moon shape. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Place the dumplings in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Steam until the dough becomes glossy, about 10 minutes.
  3. To make sauce: Combine peanut butter, cayenne pepper, sugar, and vegetable oil in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl. Cook in the microwave on High for 30 seconds and stir. Serve with the dumplings.

This recipe is not so bad; I tried making dumplings from scratch for the very first time with this. I think next time I’ll buy the skins and see if there’s an improvement. Also there is enough s...

Perfect! I didn't have the garam masala or red curry paste however these were fantastic even without it.

Oh so good, I used ground turkey instead since I didn't have pork....still turned out flavorful and a keeper. I used wonton wrappers, much easier.

Good, not amazing. Played with ingredients to our taste. Will make again. Thank you!

MMMMM! I haven't tried this recipie yet but I can't wait to. These look delicious.

Great recipe! My family loved these new flavors. Just spicy enough

Turned out great!
