These days we can easily purchase any types,shape or brands of dumpling in Asian mart at frozen section.Some Asian marts do carry homemade dumpling.It's no denial that these dumpling taste good (including plenty of MSG),reasonable price and convenient.All we needs to do is to cook and eat it!! This is my first time making homemade dumping myself.You can use any type of meat to suit your taste or preference but I used minced pork. Well, I think my dumpling skin is a little bit thick and my crimping style is not up to the expectation :( Anyway,I think the taste is good enough and it's not too bad since it's my first attempt!! Maybe in future I will try to practices more to make the appearance look perfect!!.Happy Crimping!!
