1. Combine the filling ingredients in a bowl and mix until well-incorporated. Set aside.
2. In a big bowl, combine all ingredients together and mix until it forms a ball (the dough should be firm). Cover with a wet towel and let it rest for 10 minutes. Transfer the dough to a working surface and kneed until the dough becomes smooth. Follow the same process for each dough.
3. Roll part of each dough into a rope then assemble them together to make a bigger rope. Cut the rope into small pieces and press each piece into a small disc. Then use a rolling pin to flatten it into a thin disc, then cut with a cookie cutter if prefer.
4. Place a tablespoon of filling in the middle of a wrapper and seal the wrapper.
5. Boil a pot of water and gently add in dumplings. Cook for about 5~8 minutes until the dumplings float on the surface.
