Happy Chinese Lunar New Year and Spring Festival!
2014 is the year of the Horse.
When I was in grade school; my friend's Mom use to make dumplings and sesame noodles for our class for Chinese New Year. I remember her explaining that she made dumplings for good luck and wealth and the noodles for a long, healthy life. When I asked why; she said, "Can't you see, they look like a purse full of money!"
She was also nice enough to give me her amazing sesame noodle recipe, but that's a recipe for another time!
Back to the dumplings....
I introduced Kishore to Chinese style dumplings when we were dating and we usually have some frozen stock in the fridge.
It wasn't until last year that my friend gave us handmade pork dumplings for Chinese New Year. They were absolutely delicious! I was suppose to share them with Kishore, but.... OK I won't lie only 2 made it home.
So naturally I had to ask her for the recipe which she graciously shared. Now I can make them and what we don't eat gets frozen for later! Since she shared the wealth of her dumpling recipe; it only seems right that I do the same.
Here is a my slightly modified versions of those Mouth-watering Morsels.
