Gyoza / Dumpling Wrappers
A simple recipe to make your own dumplings at home.
2 cups / 250gm ( 0.5lb) plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup hot water
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add salt to just-boiled water and mix until completely dissolved. Add the water slowly, stirring with a spatula. You will eventually need to use your hands to form the dough into a ball and kneed on a floured work bench for 10 minutes (until smooth).
Cut the dough in half then shape each half into 2 long logs then wrap with plastic wrap. Let it sit for 30 minutes.
You now have 2 options:
1. Divide into 30-36 pieces then roll out each pieces and use as wrappers - less uniform shape but quicker.
2. Roll out all of the dough and use a cookie cutter to make the same amount of perfect circles.
Use straight away with your chosen filling or sprinkle each wrapper with cornflour/ starch and stack the wrappers.
Keep wrappers for about 3-4 days in the refrigerator and up to a month in freezer. Defrost in the refrigerator prior to use.
