 How to cook dumpling



Or traditional method which is a little bit more complicated:
Heat 2 tablespoon of oil in a non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot, place some dumplings on top then cook until the skin turned brown. Add 1/2 cup of boiling water to the pan then cover it with lid to allow the water to steam until the dumplings are cooked.
