Dumpling Recipes


The jiaozi is a Chinese dumpling which consists of meat and minced vegetables wrapped into a piece of dough. Popular meat fillings include shrimp, ground lamb, ground pork, ground beef, and even fish. Jiaozi are usually steamed or boiled. If they are fried, they are called potstickers. Compared to wontons, jiaozis have a thicker skin and are longer.

The baozi is another Chinese dumpling, made with a thick leavened bun, compared to the thin noodle-like skin of jiaozi.

Zongzi are a traditional Chinese food. Sticky rice is used to fill a parcel made from dried lotus or bamboo leaves. The parcels are steamed for several hours to cook the rice, and when unwrapped they retain their shape. The dumplings may be eaten plain with syrup, or the rice is flavoured with meat and vegetables or mashed beans before cooking.
