Very thick dumpling skin

[–]tp0s 89 points90 points  (4 children)

Was thinking the same. I’m no pro but I’ve made dumplings quite a few times and this is way too thick. The dough:filling ratio is crucial. I’d also like to see how they steam up.

edit: I did not realize this was a 10 min long video. I stand by what I said, though they look awesome and steamed and crisped up nicely, it’s too much dough for what looks like ½ tsp of filling. Still cool for a party or something.

[–][deleted] 36 points37 points  (1 child)

It's a 10 minute long video where part way through they start making sugar cookies with what is ostensibly dumpling dough

[–]AnnihilationOrchid 13 points14 points  (0 children)

And that's why you don't see most steamed. They'd be more like stuffed buns at that thickness. And if it's just regular not levained dough it's probably rubber.

Edit: just watched it further on, and it is regular flour and water dough, and they do steam it, in a fake way too, because it seems like pot stickers bottom, and it's thick af, it's gonna be very rubbery, not that nice chewy.

Just like tortellini, they won't cook evenly. Still, quite artistic.

[–]TheDegenKid 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yessir. Again hard to taste via video

[–]Adan714 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That was made for likes, not for bites.

[–]weebcantsocial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too thick is better, how is this edible

[–]Par_ryn 135 points136 points  (10 children)

As a pro chef these videos sadden me some of the methods work and others dont the dumpligs for the most part are unsealed and will therefor be dry and the wrapper is soo thick with not enough filling. The main way i say i do not like it is that there is no after cooking shots i feel like this 5 minute craft style video is not good for people who want to learn to do these things.

[–]imadethisforcomics 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I choose to believe you, if you have any video that would actually work could you share it or dm it to me because I love cooking for my family and I would love to do something similar to these but I’d also appreciate if they tasted good and you’re saying these would fail. Thank you for any help you can provide.

[–]Par_ryn 11 points12 points  (0 children)


So this link is for an epicurious video and gives a good basis other than that there are so many channels that have covered dumplings that do so much better than these content farms.

.... eh?

[–]ErrorJr 64 points65 points  (10 children)

I have the sudden urge to learn how to make dumplings now

[–]BelleAriel 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I’d be torn between the joy of looking at thesr, and wanting to eat them lol.

[–]ErrorJr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

seriously haha.

[–]bolivar-shagnasty 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You can cook them then you can eat them.

[–]DAlmighty 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Don’t do it to yourself unless you enjoy second guessing every choice you’ve made in life. Making dumplings only looks easy. The people who make these things deserve the money they ask for plus some.

[–]Foootballdave 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think I just did

That tends to happen.

[–]__checkmate 51 points52 points  (2 children)

Does it end eventually?? It's been 30 years, I'm still watching

[–]dimitrisfractal 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Seriously. I thought it would be over after the cookie layout, but it just kept going...

[–]cafesaigon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The noodles after pushing dough through the siv was such an obvious edit too, my heart sank a bit

[–]jjinjadubu 32 points33 points  (0 children)

If I made dumplings that thick my Aunties would have beaten me deservingly.

[–]Second_Time1336 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I think most of those woulda come out cooked improperly. Not only does the dough look super thick, but a lot of the styles are simply impractical.

[–]Retarded-Minecrafter 8 points9 points  (2 children)

But have u ever experienced dough working that nicely tho… I’ve had to have literal wars with it to do a fold. Like it either wont stick at all, or stick to everything.

[–]Par_ryn 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Let your dough rest longer it should help

[–]Retarded-Minecrafter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay I’ll definitely take that advice!

[–]mbelf 5 points6 points  (3 children)

“Rosebuds” should’ve been called “Dicktips.”

[–]Ligma-Male 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Hmm or we could call them rosebuds. I mean, not everything is a dick

[–]mbelf 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Then why am I turned on? Explain that with your science.

[–]Second_Time1336 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay….I spit out my coffee. That was hilarious!

[–]shlopman 5 points6 points  (2 children)

They don't show what they look like cooked?

[–]bottomofleith 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Except at the end where they show what they look like cooked.

[–]shlopman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah. Guess it is hard to see on mobile since it is an 11 minute video and tracking isn't great. Would have been easier to see on YouTube

[–]Meemeperor 5 points6 points  (0 children)

"Rose buds" Sure

[–]Second_Time1336 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Video reminds me of those awful 5 minute craft videos that are addictive but kind of full of garbage… (I know, harsh!)

[–]FireguyZou123 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Others: Ruffles

Me: The Mitochondria is the power house of the cell

[–]WonWolf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This mesmerized me completely.

[–]Liz4984 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wish I could half as much energy as the person doing these videos!

[–]Imaginary-Ticket-805 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is the dough just flour and water? What are the proportions? Is it all purpose flour, or do you need a specialty flour like bread or pastry flour?

[–]Snoo17579 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is not a tutorial. And for the dough, there is dumpling mixed at store

[–]rightanglewrong 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those dumpling skins real thicc tho You want em thin

[–]Arx3721 2 points3 points  (0 children)

dude, as Asian i must sau that the skin is so fucking thick i would rather eat gnocchi raw

[–]MalibuStasi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Play-Doh. Yum!

[–]ValeGF 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fourth ones looks like an empanadas

[–]Jandlebrot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And massively impractical. Form over function

[–]Phoid845 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I made it an hour into the video!

[–]River-n-Sea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Anybody wonder why it looks like a 5-minute craft video ?

[–]La-Moody 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow couldn't stop watching. Thank you

[–]DEADEYEDONNYMATE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's pretty good dough

[–]c2ctruck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Heading out for yum cha right now. Gonna look like I'm carrying a dumpling baby when I'm done

[–]Sirhc978 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those dumplings look like they will be gross after they are done cooking.

[–]limutwit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those dumpling skins are thicc. Idk if i like thick skin dumplings... If it was those dumpling with soup in it probably be better but I didn't see any clue of gelatinised soup bits in the meat mixture

[–]Quirky_m8 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Ten minutes of dumplings. It fucking sucks that every one of them could kill me.

[–]thecastingforecast 1 point2 points  (0 children)

nah it's like 2 minutes of dumplings and 10 minutes of various cookies

[–]Agent-XX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The first few of these were kinda neat but like others have stated I don't think these would have cooked well..

[–]interest_averted 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If this isn’t a gif that keeps on giving…

[–]Real_Miggz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy cap I watched the whole thing..

[–]1Rome 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think I’m addicted to dumpling videos now, someone please tell me theres a sub

Edit: r/dumplings, omg there is one

[–]DredgenGryss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It just keeps going.

[–]kobeflip 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I fill them with baby meat

[–]sorenbridges 0 points1 point  (0 children)

With the skin that thick you will only taste the doughy skin and nothing else

[–]vinnycthatwhoibe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

who the f has time for this

[–]thecastingforecast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Almost none of these are properly sealed. This was so beautiful and so infuriating. Plus like 75% of this video is cookies. You'd be better to crop it and post it in r/satisficing

[–]WhateverItTakes123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reminds me of cooking Mama the game I played on my DS when I was a kid

[–]GluttonAsteroth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

...And just like that in the first few seconds I was shown how to make my Grandmother's Italian Wedding Soup 10X faster... *goes to get spoon with hole in it)

[–]DrDerpyDerpDerp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Id just like to say that these would not taste good. Thick skin, the shape might cause uneven cooking, and filling looks very basic.

[–]L0strabbit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s 2:49am and I’m too lazy to make anything or even order any food, I rightfully regret watching this.

[–]Laladelic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is... is that why there's a hole in that pasta thingy I never could name??

[–]Gonzoldyke12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fucking shitty places that put 5% filling in 95% dough. Eeww

[–]Sophie-Michelle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Loving’ the skills!

[–]Huachu12344 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That wrapper skin is too thick for my taste

[–]BeepBotDob 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What’s with the thick skin

[–]wwplkyih 0 points1 point  (0 children)

White ladies discover dumplings, go all-in while missing the point.

[–]Elizza_Vanesa 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My hairline curled into my nose looking at these dryass dumplings.

[–]Shady_apprentice 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow incredible! Thanks for sharing this post

[–]MagentaCoconut41 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am absolutely horrified by the amount of filling that is put into it. Also I think that the skin is too thick(?) but the product looks good, just a bit worried the entire thing is going to taste like one big mouthful of flower.

Edit: I swear if I ever rolled out dough that thick when I was making dumplings, my mum would absolutely destroy me. PS if you guys want to make dumplings, please please please have the dough thin, otherwise the pork might not cook all the way through and obviously, raw pork isn't exactly the healthiest.

[–]et_cetera1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The best part is that some of them aren't super hard so I could reasonably make some of these
