Chinese Dumplings

Happy Chinese New Year!

My brother and his girlfriend, Lucy, live in Shanghai. They sent me this cool video for how to make Chinese Dumplings since a couple friends and I are having a dumpling party to celebrate the New Year.

Ironically, we all have some sort of food allergy in our families, so we are all bringing a different stuffing mix, and I'm also making the wrappers out of sorghum flour (instead of wheat). I had pretty good luck using sorghum with a little xanathan gum. The wrappers aren't as thin and translucent, and instead of rolling you really have to work the dough and press it into a circle with your hand. Only use a little filling, because without the gluten they're not as stretchy.
