dough on a lightly floured surface, wrap in plastic wrap, and let it stand for 15
minutes. (Pot sticker skins can also be purchased at any Chinese market or major
Divide the dough into 20 equal-size pieces and roll each piece into a 5-inch
circle called a skin. Spoon a portion of the filling into the center of the skin.
Fold the skin over the filling, wet the edges of the skin, and pinch together so
the filling is sealed inside.

a skillet. Place the steamed dumplings and fry for three minutes, or until one side
