Example text

The 135 dumplings that follow, and the 60 soups, stews, and sauces in which they’re cooked, are all traditional—adapted only as necessary for modern kitchen equipment and ingredients. You will find a detailed glossary of ingredients, equipment, tips, and diagrams to help simplify even the most demanding recipes. That being said, we strongly encourage you to use your hands, and not machines, when you roll out the dough that certain dumplings require. Of course, you can always use a pasta machine for dough that has to be rolled out thin, but using a rolling pin connects you more directly to the dough.

When sautéing or frying ingredients for fillings or sauces, we use primarily grapeseed oil. It has a high smoking point and no discernible flavor. A neutral oil such as this can be used in recipes from around the world without changing signature flavors. Peanut, olive, and sesame oil are also used in this book. Coconut oil that has not been hydrogenated is a good cooking oil that works well in recipes where a light coconut flavor is welcomed. FISH, SHRIMP, AND SHELLFISH: There are relatively few traditional dumplings made with fish or seafood, compared with meat, mushrooms, beans, and other savory fillings.

Once the butter has melted and has a foamy surface, reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Once the foam thins out and the milk solids at the bottom of the pot are golden brown, remove from the heat. The ghee will be a light to medium caramel color. Skim off any foamy bits from the surface and strain the ghee, leaving as many of the cooked solid bits as you can in the pot, through a sieve lined with several layers of cheesecloth. You should have about 1¾ cups.
