The Daring Cooks Challenge this month was to make Chinese dumplings. Before going gluten free I use to love wontons, crab ragoons, and egg rolls. I have toyed with idea of making my own wrappers but never gotten around to doing it, so I was very excited but nervous. I used equal parts white rice flour and tapioca starch.
I pressed the dough out into small rounds similar to how I press tortillas out but smaller. My filling was a mixture mushrooms, yellow peppers, onions, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. I steamed the dumplings and served with a dipping sauce of soy sauce and lemon juice.
They turned out pretty good but the skins needed to be thinner. I will definitley work on perfecting these before I post a recipe but I had fun and enjoyed my first challenge.
