  • Cut the dumpling dough into medium balls using your hands.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the work surface, roll the ball with a rolling pin, and make it as thin as possible.
  • Use the spatula to cut the layer into pieces.
  • Pick all the pieces one at a time, drop them in the boiling broth, and stir them immediately to not stick at the bottom. Cook for about 6-8 minutes.
