The Thermomix makes light work of this Dumpling Wrapper recipe, we’ve included the brand of Pastry/Cake Flour that we used.
190gLow Protein Plain Flour or Gluten Free Plain FlourI used Lighthouse Biscuit, Pastry & Cake Plain Flour available at Coles or Woolworths
130gwater(increase to 170g for Gluten Free Variation)
Add all ingredients to mixer bowl and mix for 10 sec/speed 4/MC on.
Knead for 1 min. Form the dough into a ball and leave in the bowl with the lid on to rest for 15 min.
Knead the dough again for 3 min. Remove, cover with cling wrap and rest for 45 min.
Divide the dough equally into 4 balls. Wrap 3 in cling wrap while you work on the 4th. This will ensure they don’t dry out. Note - if you only have a high protein flour it is best to rest for longer until dough is very soft to touch.
Roll the dough out into an even small rope and cut into 6 even portions. Press them into a small disc shape and then roll each disc out into a small circle. The edges should be thin and the centre slightly thicker. This ensures the dumpling wrapper isn’t too thick when folding. Dust wrappers with flour if piling on top of each other or they will stick together.
Wrappers need to be used immediately or they will be dry and hard to shape. Form your dumplings as soon as the first batch of dough is made. Then proceed to the next batch of dough.
Gluten Free: Use Gluten Free Plain flour and increase water to 170 g. In Step 2 the dough will seem dry and crumbly but it will form into a ball and be the perfect consistency. Wrap and rest for 15 min. Skip Step 3. Tip – don’t roll too thin to avoid breakage.Freezer Friendly (not for gluten free): Wrappers can be frozen sprinkle extra flour in between each wrapper. Wrap in air tight bag removing as much air as possible.
