  1. In a large mixing bowl, lightly mix dry ingredients. Slowly add the water to the flour while kneading dough until well-combined. Portion into approximately 15 dumplings. Bring water to a light boil. Boil dumplings until they float, plus an additional minute. Cool dumplings on a wire rack. Some recipes call for skewering dumplings at this point and grilling them. Brush with mitarashi sauce (recipe link above).
