You can, in fact, buy dumpling wrappers if you are lucky enough to have a stockist near you. However, they are very easy to make yourself and below is a good straightforward recipe. Bean curd skins also work as dumpling wrappers, but they are quite fragile and brittle so layer the skins in damp cloths to reconstitute them before using.


  • 250 g/9 oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the water.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg and water mixture. Mix to a dough with a fork, then dive in with your hands and transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and knead well for about 4 minutes. Roll the dough in flour and wrap in clingfilm
