    1. Knead the cake flour and water together to make a semi-hard dough. Set aside.

    So very yummy and a nice take on something we normally think of as 'Chinese'  -  10 Jan 2017


    Misture can be half cooked before filling it in dough circles; if made for parents and old people who dont like raw and boiled stuff. My daadi loves it this way  -  23 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes India)
