  1/4 tsp salt
12 White Wrappings
 130g all purpose flour
 75ml warm water
 1/4 tsp salt
Pork Prawn Filling
 150 g minced pork
 100 g prawns
 75 g Chinese cabbage
  3/4 carrot
 7 g ginger
  1 1/2 clove of garlic
 1 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce
  3/4 tablespoon sesame oil
  3/4 teaspoon white pepper
 pinch of salt
Plain Dough
1

Add flour and salt into a bowl. Now add in boiling water all at once. Mix everything with a spoon until you get large crumbs.
Bring everything together using your hand. Transfer to a working surface and knead for 5 minutes. Make into a ball and cover tightly with cling film. Set aside to rest for 1 hour.

Spinach Dough
2

Add flour and salt into a bowl, set aside.
In a glass jar, add in fresh spinach and boiling water. Using a hand blender, blend everything into a fine mixture.

3

Measure 5 tbsp and add them all at once into the flour bowl. Mix everything with a spoon until you get large crumbs.
Bring everything together using your hand. Transfer to a working surface and knead for 5 minutes. Make into a ball and cover tightly with cling film. Set aside to rest for 1 hour.

Gochujang Dough
4

Add flour and salt into a bowl, set aside.
Put gochujang into a bowl and add in boiling water. Mix everything with a spoon. Now add all at once into the flour bowl. Mix everything with a spoon until you get large crumbs.

5

Bring everything together using your hand. Transfer to a working surface and knead for 5 minutes. Make into a ball and cover tightly with cling film. Set aside to rest for 1 hour.

6

The liquid needs to be hot. If by the time you finish blending spinach or mixing gochujang the liquid cools a bit, then reheat it in microwave for a few seconds before using.
Add liquid all at once, not 1 tbsp at a time.

Rolling
7

Cut into 12 equal pieces. Take 1 piece and press a bit. Using a rolling pin, roll 1/3 inwards to the center and keep twisting the dough as you go. You will get a round circle with a slightly thicker center.

Filling and Pleading
8

Combine all the filling ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well by hand.

9

Fill the wrappers with your favourite filling and pleat nicely. Continue with the rest of the wrappers. Steam or cook them for 15 minutes.

Note: I'd suggest do not roll all of your dumpling wrappers all at once and stack them. If you leave them stacked for long, they will stick.
