so how do you fry these dumplings? do you have to boil them first?

My mom pan fries them with a little bit of pig fat in our wok--the little ridges get brown--I don't recall that she ever boiled them first since the stuff inside is already cooked--I prefer them steamed and not boiled in the bamboo steamer

The filling is raw in my dumplings (and above) so that was why I was wondering about frying, if they would cook through. I guess I can just cook them slowly.

I appreciate the vegetarian recipe the most since bought dumplings all contain meat!

Yep, that's my problem! I will eat the ones made with leek and egg (pre-cooked egg chopped finely).

Hope they work at the party. Sounds like a blast!


edelC - The Chinese fried dumplings here are boiled first. That is because the filling (except those with egg) is raw. you boil them and then put them in a pan with some hot oil until the ridges are nicely browned. I much prefer them boiled or steamed as I don't like oile foods.

This looks delicious, and is definitely tagged as my next cooking excursion!  Thanks for the tips on frying them, i had a fried dumpling for the first time yesterday and thought it was great, so i was thinking of trying that. =)
The only thing I'm confused about is the cabbage, what is the difference between a chinese cabbage and a regular one, and are regular markets likely to have them? (cabbage.. one of the few plants I know nothing about!)

A standard cabbage is round. A Chinese cabbage is longer, more oval in shape. A Chinese cabbage has a milder flavour and less strong structure things (ribs? Whatever they're called).

If you used a standard cabbage I would chop it super finely in a food processor and lightly fry it off before stuffing the dumplings. That would ensure you didn't get any hard bits. Also, don't use the really thick rib bits.
