First recipe of 2017! This delicious Nepali dumpling is a fun and easy recipe that you can make with your friends or families.


You need:

  • 1 lb ground or minced lamb
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • 3 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 30 round dumpling wrappers (about 3 inches wide, you can make them fresh, but I have found a good recipe yet)

How to make this:

  1. Mix the minced lamb, onion, cilantro, ginger, oil, garlic, turmeric, salt, you can use any meat you want, chicken, pork, beef, just not anything that’s too lean, a little fat makes it tender and juicy.
  2. If you want to make it vegetarian, substitute the meat with crimini mushrooms with 1.3x the weight, mince them, then squeeze the water out with a cheesecloth
  3. Place about a generous tsp of fillings in the wrap, then “glue” the edge with some water, you can just squeeze form them, or do some different designs
  4. Steam the dumpling over boiling water for about 20 min, you can also boiling it in hot, salted water for 3 min
  5. If you made too much, you can keep them in the freeze (uncooked) for up to 2 month
