1: Soak dried Chinese mushrooms and agaricus mushrooms in warm water for 4 hours (Pictures 1 and 2), rinse and set aside.

2. Dough: Combine flour and baking powder of Ingredient 1) in a medium bowl and combine well (Picture 3, right). Mix all ingredients of Ingredient 2) in a container and let stand for 10 minutes (Picture 3, left). Pour the yeast mixture into the flour bowl, and combine to form dough.

4: When the dough rises and doubles in volume (Picture 9), gently knead the dough for a few times and divide into 4 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 2-cm diameter log and cut into 8 discs. Roll out each disc into an 8-10 cm circular wrapper. Roll from centre outwards so that the edges are thinner than the centre. Place 1.5 tbsp filling in the middle of a wrapper (Picture 10). Fold the wrapper over to form a half moon and press the center edges to seal. Then start from the right side, fold slightly the back side to form pleats. Work your way towards the center, then over to the left side (Picture 11). Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

5: Place dumplings on parchment paper lined baking sheet and let stand in an oven for 45-75 minutes until their volume increases by 50%.

6: Heat 1 tbsp oil over high heat in a non-stick sauté pan. Place 8 dumplings in the pan, add 1 cup water and cover the lid (Picture 12). This allows the dumplings to steam and cook through. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until all the water evaporates. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for another 3 minutes. Reduce to low heat and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and wait for 2 minutes before open the lid. Transfer dumplings to a serving plate and serve immediately. Repeat with the other 16 dumplings.
