Dough[edit | edit source]

  1. Pour hot water over flour; mix with fork.
  2. When cool enough to handle, finish mixing with your hands until dough holds together.
  3. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate until chilled through.
  4. Work one piece of dough at a time; pinch off a walnut-sized chunk, shape into a ball, knead several times, then roll flat on a floured board.
  5. Place dough circle in the palm of your hand; in the middle of the dough, place about 1 tbsp filling. Bring up edges and seal at top with little gathers.
  6. Leave a tiny hole at top for steam to escape during cooking.
  7. Line steamer or bottom of skillet with kale leaves.
  8. Top with a layer of dumplings and steam over boiling water 15 to 20 minutes.
  9. If using a skillet use just enough water to cushion the Mo-Mos; replenish water as needed.
  10. Serve immediately, pairing Mo-Mos with soy sauce, ginger, and vinegar. May also be served with Achar.
