Today I made "Chinese Dumplings" for my kids. In my family these called Guo Tie / Kuo Tie. Guo Tie are so popular among the Chinese people.
I had this guo tie recipe from my grandmother ,, She taught me how to make guo tie when I was a kid, and I usually watched and helped her cook guo tie every Chinese New Year (^^,)
I started with make my own guo tie skin (the dough), with flour and water ,, The dough will be difficult to knead for a while, and after that the texture went soft and easy to knead. I have to make the skin so thin and round shape, so I can wrap the filling in perfect shape ,, see the tutorial below to create guo tie skin ,,
The filling for guo tie can be variant, but my version today was so simple. I filled the dumpling with ground pork, chopped shrimp, vermicelli, kuchai (it's like a spring onion), and slices of fried eggs, sesame oil, sugar, pepper, and soy sauce. Stir all the ingredients for a while until well blended. Then wrap the guo tie.
For my kids, They'd preffered a deep fried guo tie because they like crispy skin ,,, (^0^) enjoy your guo tie ,,, kids ,,
