Boiled Dumplings 

This is the most popular way to cook your dumplings. Boiling is easy, but these are some tips to make it even easier!

  1. Add cold water 3 times 
  • During the cooking process, it is ideal that you add cold water to the boiling water three times before serving the dumplings. Remember to cover the pot with a lid each time after you add water. 
  1.   Rinse (to avoid sticking) 
  • This is to remove excess starch and minimize the chance of the dumplings sticking to one another. If you are planning to put your dumplings in a soup, you can happily skip this step. 


Fried Dumplings (Extra crispy!)

We all know how to fry a dumpling, but this is how to get that extra crispy exterior!

  • Heat up a small amount of oil over a high heat then add the dumplings to the pan
  • Take a look the bottom part of a dumpling. If it turns light brown, pour in cold water (enough to cover 1/3 of the dumplings). then immediately cover with a lid.
  • Only uncover when the water has evaporated completely. Fry for another 30-60 seconds to crisp up.


Steamed Dumplings 

This is by far the easiest method, so if you’re in a rush (or just a bit lazy) this is the option for you!

  • Place dumplings into the steamer basket, set the timer, and wait! That is literally it. 

Hot Tips: 

To prevent dumplings from sticking to the basket

  •  Place a slice of carrot, lettuce, or cabbage underneath each dumpling
  •  Coat the basket with a thin layer of oil (but only if you are using a metal steamer) 
  •  Line small pieces of parchment paper under each dumpling. (Most common non-stick method)

Only add the steamer to the water once it is fully boiled
