Siopow (Steamed Dumplings) Recipe

Step 1

Boil wrapper. Remove from heat and pour in 1 1/2 cup flour and beat until it forms a ball. Divide into 1 1/4 inch balls and roll each until paper thin. Spoon 1 tbls. mixture into each wrapper, fold and seal. Arrange in steamer and steam 30 minutes.

Again some explanation. . . these can be made with much thicker wrappers (the ones the street vendors sell are more like 1/2 to 1 inch thick) and the filling can be just about anything. I have done these with leftover meat and a few vegetables . . . such as mushrooms, celery etc.
