This is the dough for the dumpling skin

In my family, homemade dumplings are natural. We just would make them from scratch. We would try to make other things as well. During family gatherings, it was natural to make something from our culture. The easiest thing was dumplings. A lot of children in my family, know how to make dumplings from scratch. Dumplings were part of my childhood. They were the first thing I learned how to make. Dumplings are part of my history, and I would teach the next generation of my family, how to make dumplings, like how my mom first taught me.
