       Title: WHEAT STARCH WRAPPERS FOR DUMPLINGS
  Categories: Chinese
       Yield: 30 servings
  
       1 c  Wheat starch
     1/4 c  Tapioca starch
       1 c  Boiling water
       1 tb Peanut oil plus more to oil
            The wrappers
  
        Combine the wheat starch and tapioca starch in a
   mixing bowl.  When the water reaches a boil
   immediately pour it into the flour and stir vigorously
   into a ball, with a wooden spoon.  The hot boiling
   water cooks the starches.  Add the oil to the dough
   and mix together as well as possible.  The dough at
   this point is quite thick and lumpy.
   
        While hot, gather up the dough and knead on a
   lightly oiled surface until smooth and well blended,
   about 3 minutes.  It should feel a bit rubbery and
   putty-like.  Cover with a damp towel.
   
        Dough is ready to make Ha Gow or Fun Gwau.
   
   Makes enough dough for 2 1/2 dozen Ha Gow or Fun Gwau
   dumplings.
