Add water and continue to fry until the gravy turns thick.
Dish out and set aside to cool.

Pastry Skin Ingredients:-
Mixed wheat starch flour and tapioca flour in a large mixing bowl.
Add in boiling water and mixed it thoroughly with plastic rice server till
you get a translucent like dough.
Cling wrap it up and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Add in oil gradually and knead into a smooth dough in the mixing bowl.
Rolled out dough into a long sausage roll and divide into about 30 pieces.

To assemble dumpling:-
Prepare the steamer.
Lightly oil the steaming tray.
Lightly oil your hands for easy handling of dough.
Make each cut up dough into a ball and put it in between two pieces of cling

Cool dumplings for 5 minutes before removing from steamer. This is a very
important step or else you will have a sticky mess and broken vegetable
