It is time consuming dish for new cooker, especially the work with dough. But there is a way to save time. Any Chinese supermarket (T&T) is sailing the formed (10 cm round or square, 1 mm thin) dough for dumpling. So what we need to do, just stuff that forms with your preference stuffing and boil it.
You can stuffed and freeze them up for the future use, what is perfect when you are short on time and need to cook something fast.
Also it forms faster if you are place 10-15 of them on the table, add staff for each of them and after form it one by one.
You can use already ground meat, or grind meat yourself and if you choose to do so – grind onions together with meat. Meat could be different,as you prefer.
