This Dumpling Folding Tutorial Is The Most Visually Satisfying Thing You’ll See All Day

Published

on

These are dim-sum of the most beautiful dumplings ever created!

I know you’re not supposed to play with your food but how can you resist when these dumpling designs look like the most epic play dough creations ever? The YouTube channel, So Yummy, released an instructional video detailing the steps on making 10 different, intricate dumpling designs…and let me just tell you, nothing I ever created in my play dough factory came close to looking like any of these. The video demonstrates techniques such as the pinch braid, the rose bud and the dahlia with each completed design looking like a museum masterpiece. You may have to watch the video more than once, however, because something about watching the sophisticated process accompanied by the upbeat music puts you in a bit of a trance. It’s almost like food meditation? Did I just invent that?

In any event, we all have a little extra time on our hands these days so why not try one (or all) of these folding techniques at home? The channel even provides a recipe for their dumpling dough:

Dumpling Dough

Prep Time 1 hour

Total Time 1 hour

Yield 30-35 dumpling wrappers

Ingredients

2 ¼ cups flour

¾ cup warm water (between 110-120°F)

Pinch of salt (optional)

Instructions

1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and warm water until it becomes shaggy. With your hands, knead the shaggy dough inside the bowl until it comes together to form a ball. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let rest for 15 minutes.

2. After resting, transfer the ball of dough onto a clean surface and knead firmly until it becomes smooth and elastic (about 2-4 minutes.) Cover with a damp cloth and rest again, for 30 minutes.

3. After the second rest, take your thumb and press firmly into the center of the dough ball. Using both hands, begin to squeeze and stretch the dough until you create a big donut shape with a large hole in the center.

4. Slice the “donut” into even pieces of desired size. Keep covered with a damp cloth, and when ready to use, roll pieces out individually into thin wrappers. (Optional: Trim wrappers using a large circle cookie cutter, for a clean edge.)

5. Fill the wrappers with desired filling, and fold to form designs of your liking! Cook, eat, and enjoy.

Seems simple enough! Zen out and check out the video below!
