      Title: Shanghai dumplings - chowza
 Categories: Chinese, Pork, Tested, Mine
      Yield: 1 Servings
      2 c  Flour
    1/4 c  Water; more or less; hot

      1 lb Ground pork
    1/2 ts Chinese 5 spice
      1 ea Scallion; chopped
      1 ts Light soy sauce
    1/2 ts Ground black pepper
    1/4 ts Szechuan peppercorns;
           - toasted and crushed
  A very simple and filling Shanghai staple.
  Put flour in a food processer. Gradually add water (your mileage may
  vary) while mixing until the dough forms into a ball. Roll out on a
  floured surface to about 1/16" thick. Use a glass to cut into 3"
  circles. Set wrappers aside.
  Mix filling ingredients.
  To assemble, put a wrapper in the palm of your hand. Place about 1
  tablespoon of the filling in the wrapper and fold in half. Keep 1/4"
  of the wrapper free of stuffing for a good seal. Moisten edge with
  water. Crimp the edges together using your first 2 fingers and thumb,
  fluting the edges. Go around in one direction, flip over, then
  reverse. The idea is to seal them good! Cool in the 'fridge for at
  least an hour.
  Steam for 20 minutes; let cool.
  Deep fry until golden brown. Serve hot.
  Variations/notes: * Place each dumpling on a small piece of cabbage or
  lettuce to
    prevent sticking to the steamer rack. * Try boned pork steaks, fat
  removed, ground in a food processor. * Also try shrimp, chicken, or a
  combo of all. * Hot peppers, or pepper sauce, may be added to the
  filling. * The steam/cool/fry technique is the only way it matches
  the real
    thing! But these are also good just steamed.  I usually do them
  Sauces: Chopped garlic and light soy sauce
  :       Coleman's Dry Mustard mixed with cold water or light soy sauce
  :       Sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, and dark soy sauce
  :       Hot pepper sauce of your choice
  Makes about 16 dumplings.
  Personal Note: When in Shanghai, I visited a restaurant that served
  only dumplings, on Nanjing Lu. They had =so= many variations of
  fillings and sauces; it was incredible. When I asked how the wrappers
  were made, I was told just mix flour and water, nothing else.
