This is my vegetarian and vegan version of chinese dumplings. I used tofu for the filling but you can use almost any type of filling. I also used left over samosa dough for the dumplings!!! I am enclosing a video tutorial on how to go about making them but this is the recipe. The video tutorial is made with minced chicken but the method is the same!!
1 cup of white flour
2 tablespoons of oil
salt to taste
water to make a dough
2 cups of drained and mashed tofu(remove the tofu from its packaging and wrap in a kitchen towel overnight to remove all the moisture)
1 teaspoon each of soya sauce and sesame oil
2-3 chinese mushrooms soaked in hot water for 2 hours , then drain and chop fine
a dash of salt and white pepper
a little grated ginger
a little chopped spring onion or leeks
mash the tofu and add all the other ingredients. Make small balls out of the dough. Roll each ball into a thin round and place a bit of the filling on one side of the round. Fold the other side of the round and make into a half moon. Seal edges well and place on a greased frying pan. When all are done put the pan on heat and cover. Cook on both sides till done.
Serve with soya sauce mixed with honey as a dipping sauce

PLEASE NOTE: the video tutorial is just to see how to wrap the dumplings.. the filling in the video is with chicken but this recipe is with tofu 🙂
