With the urbanisation of China’s big cities including Beijing, street foods like this dumpling, which could be found at almost any street corner, are fast becoming a thing of the past. This is a simple dumpling with honest flavours, but even the best street versions have shortcomings—usually because the pastry is not very palatable. In our version, we layered our pastry to make it fluffier and lighter.
