  • 1/4 bunch of scallions
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • salt and pepper

  4. Cover and rest for 15 minutes. Then re-knead the dough for 2 to 3 minutes for a very smooth dough.
  5. For the filling: Mix together meat, scallions, ginger, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and salt and pepper. Let sit.
  6. For the dumplings: When the dough becomes soft and smooth, cut in half and knead each half into a round ball. Cut in half again and roll into a log. Divide the log into 1 inch dough pieces. Roll or press it into a thin circle.
