  1. Dough:

  3. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl.
  4. Make a well in the middle and begin pouring boiling water -- about 1/4 cup at a time.
  5. Mix with a spoon and continue to add boiling water until the dough begins to be sticky.
  6. Flour your hands and working surface well.
  7. Remove dough from bowl and hand knead about 5-10 minutes until it is pretty smooth and elastic.

  12. Combine all of the ingredients from above filling ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
  13. Assembly:
  14. Scoop about 1 Tbsp of mixture and place into the middle of the dough round.
  15. Pull up opposite sides of dough and fold over and pinch down. Pinch the ends and flute with your fingers.
  16. Cooking:

  18. Put pot stickers in batches into the hot oil and pan fry until the bottoms brown -- remove the batches as they finish and place on a plate
  19. Once all are pan fried and over medium heat, place them all back into the frying pan with the remaining oil, add about 1/2 cup warm water into the pan
