  10. I usually put them on the pan to heat up with oil and then pour water, put it on high wait for the water to evaporate and by the time the waters gone the dumplings are cooked and i leave them on there on medium for a bit to crisp up, its all the same, just different method I guess. Great video.

  11. I found out that doing it this way, the flavour of the ingredients isn't diluted by boiling. Thanks for viewing my video.
