Forming Vegetarian Dumplings

Pan Frying Vegetarian Dumplings
  1. Heat up the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. When the oil is hot, place the dumplings in the pan in a circle. You should be able to fit about 20.
  3. Pan fry until the bottoms are lightly brown. Carefully add 2 tablespoons of water to the pan.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium low, and cover the pan with a lid.
  5. Cook until the vegetarian dumplings are tender, about 4-5 minutes.
  6. Optionally, remove the lid and cook for an additional minute to crisp up the bottom.
  7. Serve vegetarian dumplings immediately with dipping sauce of your choice.
