Ingredients

Directions

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Tip

Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

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 stuffing left over to make another 10 12. Next time I ll be sure to use parchment paper in my steamer.

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.
