How to make it

  • To Make Sauce:
  • Heat a heavy dry skillet (I used cast iron) over medium to medium high heat. Place whole tomatoes in pan, shaking and turning occasionally, until tomatoes are blackened and blistered in several spots. Place in a strainer and rinse under cold water. Remove skins and place whole tomatoes in food processor or blender along with other dipping sauce ingredients. Process until smooth. (Can be made ahead and refrigerated
  • To make the dough:
  • Combine flour and salt; add oil to about 1/2 cup of water and mix into flour. Keep adding water and mixing until a smooth dough is formed. Knead for about 8-10 minutes. (Add a few drops water to keep moist) Cover and let rest 30 minutes. Punch down before making wrappers - as you make them, keep under damp towel so they don't dry out. (Dough should be moist enough so that it's easy to work with - I kept adding drops of water when kneading to keep it "slick")
  • To Make Filling:
  • Combine all filling ingredients.
  • Assembly:
  • Start water boiling in a pan. Oil a steamer basket (I have none, so I used my mesh "splatter guard" over a large pot of water, and a domed lid - like a wok cover - to allow room for the dumplings. You could even used a round cake pan the same size as your pot, and just turn it upside-down for a cover)
  • Roll dough into 1" balls. Press down with the palm of your hand to make a circle, then roll out with a rolling pin until they are about 3" or 4" in diameter. (Flour your surface if necessary, but I used a wooden cutting board for my surface and did not need to add flour). I made in batches of five, as that's all I could fit in my makeshift steamer.
  • Place 1 teaspoon of the filling mixture in the center of each circle; fold over into a half circle and pinch seams. Crimp by making folds in the seams. Place on steamer, cover and steam for 12-15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with Tomato-Mint Achar dipping sauce.
