Vegan Dumplings

  • Vegan | Sugar - Free

Prep Time : 25 mins

Cook Time : 20 mins

Total Time : 45 mins

Yield : 5 - 6 dumplings


1/2 cup All purpose flour ( use gluten-free flour for gluten-free version )

1/4 cup Water

1 cup Cabbage

1/2 carrot

1 medium Onion

1/4 cup Tofu

1 tsp Chili Powder

1/2 tsp Coriander Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 cup Cilantro


  • In a mixing bowl, add flour, pinch of salt, water and mix to get pizza dough consistency. Cover it with a bowl or plastic and keep it aside for 20-30 mins.

  • In mean time prepare the stuffing. Finely chop cabbage, carrot, onion and dry on frying pan for 5 mins on medium flame. Keep stirring constantly to avoid burn. ( This step is for reducing water content in the veggies ).

  • Turn the flame to low and add scrambled tofu and saute for 3-4 mins. Now add the spices, chili powder, coriander powder, salt and chopped cilantro. 

  • Saute for 3-4 mins and transfer the mix to a bowl and place in refrigerator for 15 mins. ( This makes the stuffing process easy )

  • Now divide the prepare dough into small balls and press them to 3 inch circles. Use dry flour to avoid sticking. 

  • Place 1-2 tbsp of stuffing on the circles and fold them to dumpling shape with hand. ( folding takes a little practice , you may not get first 2 perfect but keep doing to get perfect shape. Check youtube videos on how to press dumplings in different shapes for more ideas ).

  • Now place the pressed dumplings in boiling water and let cook for 10 mins. Remove from water and let dry for 15 mins. 

  • Can serve boiled dumplings or pan fry for 3-4 mins to get that little crunch. Serve with roasted sesame seeds and traditional peanut sauce!

VARIATION : Can deep fry instead of boiling. Use different type os vegetables like, mushrooms, peas, potato as stuffing.
