Instructions

Make Dumpling Mixture

  • Chop kimchi into very small pieces. Make sure the pork is finely minced pork with your knife.
  • Cut asian chives and spring onion into small pieces as well.
  • Then grab a large handful of Korean glass noodles and boil in a pot for 7 minutes. Drain the pot and rinse the boiled noodles in cold water. Chop the long noodles into small pieces as well. Place all of these chopped pieces into a bowl.

Season Dumpling Mixture

  • Add all of the listed "seasoning" ingredients into the mixture.
  • Then mix it all together very thoroughly with your hands.

Make Dumplings

  • Fill a small dish with cold water.
  • Then get a dining spoon. Grab one spoonful of the dumpling mixture and place into the middle of the dumpling skin.
  • Dip your finger in the water and wet the outer edge of the dumpling skin.
  • Fold the dumpling in half and squeeze it shut with your fingers (like a mini-quesadilla). Then make two creases on each side of the dumplings (watch the video again!). Finish by making one fold in the top-center.
  • Repeat until you run out of dumpling skins.

Pan-frying

  • Put frying pan on medium-low heat. Place oil in frying pan. Once hot, place dumplings in.
  • Once the bottom-side gets crispy, lay on one side. Once it gets crispy on one side, then flip over to the opposite side.
  • Let it cool down and enjoy! Dip dumplings in soy sauce as well.

Notes

  • This will make around 50-60 dumplings. Sounds like alot - but they get eaten quickly! Instead of pan-frying the dumplings, you can also use them in a soup.
