Dumpling Recipe: Homemade Dumplings

Dumplings are intimidating (well, they can be). But they are also, in fact, delicious. No matter what you stuff them with, the concept of a soft, pillowy dough enveloping a luscious, super flavorful filling is enough to warm you up from the inside out. With our Homemade dumpling recipe, we bring that warm and fuzzy feeling right to your kitchen table.  

Ingredients :

for   24   dumplings

  • 4 cups   all-purpose flour(500   g)
  • 2 teaspoons   salt, divided
  • 1 ¼ cups   warm water(300   mL)
  • 2 cups   red cabbage(200   g)
  • 2 cups   green onion(300   g), sliced
  • 6 cloves   garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons   ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons   soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons   sesame oil
  • ½ lb   ground pork(225   g)
  • ½ teaspoon   pepper
  • ¾ cup   mushroom(55   g), diced
  • ¾ cup   carrot(90   g), diced
  • ½ lb   shrimp(225   g), peeled and deveined


  • ¼ cup   soy sauce(60   mL)
  • ¼ cup   rice wine vinegar(60   mL)
  • 1 teaspoon   sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon   crushed red pepper flake

Preparation :

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and the warm water and mix until well combined.
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface and knead until smooth.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.
  • Roll 1 piece of dough into a thin log and divide into 6 or 8 pieces, depending on the size of the balls you want. Repeat with the remaining portions of dough.
  • Lightly flour the pieces of dough and roll out one piece into a thin circle about 10 cm in diameter.
  • Keep the sheets of dumpling dough separated with a small piece of parchment paper and repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Combine cabbage, green onions, garlic, ginger, soy Sauce and sesame oil in a medium bowl and mix until well incorporated.
  • For the pork filling, combine the ground pork with the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt, pepper and 1 cup (125 g) of the cabbage mixture and stir until well incorporated.
  • For the vegetable topping, combine mushrooms and Carrot and microwave for 3 minutes, until tender. Add 1 cup (125 g) of the cabbage mixture and stir until well incorporated.
  • For the Shrimp filling, combine the Shrimp with 1 cup (125 g) of the cabbage mixture and stir until well incorporated.
  • To assemble dumplings, add about 1 heaping tablespoon of filling to the center of a dumpling shell. Using your finger, lightly coat half of the outside of the wrapper with water. Fold the wet half of the wrapper over the filling and, using your fingers, fold the edges to seal them. Repeat with remaining filling and paper.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a few dumplings, cooking them in batches. When the bottom of the dumplings start to brown, add a little water and cover with a lid. Steam for about 5 minutes, or until the dumplings are cooked and the water has evaporated. Transfer cooked dumplings to a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess moisture or fat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and chili flakes and stir to combine. Serve the dumplings immediately with the dipping sauce.
  • Enjoy!
