2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Mix flour and salt, and add three tablespoon lukewarm water. If dough is too stiff, add more by the tablespoon.
2. Make into a long sausage, and divide dough into twenty pieces. Flatten each one and roll into a four to five inch circle.
3. Put half teaspoon of a filling into the center, slightly dampen half the edge and fold the dough in half, pressing the edge slightly. Pleat the edges (ten to twenty pleats is common) and put in a steamer over rapidly boiling water, or boil the dumplings for ten minutes, then remove and serve with a dipping sauce, or fry them on one side (for color and flavor) before serving.
