Add extra water and kneed the flour into a dough, you can add more water as you go.

The dough should be not dry and not hard, a little bit soft.

(Alternatively you can use a blender to make the dough)

For making the filling:

Meanwhile, in a large bowl use a folk to combine chopped bok choy, mushrooms, leeks, rice noodles and ginger, garlic together, adding cooked and seasoned vegetable oil, sesame oil, soy sauce and white wine, salt to taste, mixing all these ingredients well.

For making the dumplings (jiao zi):

Arrange dough onto a floured surface, kneed the dough for several times.

Cut the dough into the half, put the other half back into the damp towel.

Shape the dough into a round log, about 8-inch long.

Cut the log evenly into 8 pieces.

Roll every piece into a 6 to 7-inch round wrap with a rolling roll, keep the wraps onto a floured surface to prevent bottom stick.

Arrange the wrap on a floured surface, spoon 2 to 2½ tablespoons of stuffing onto one side of the wrap, the stuffing may look a little bit full.

Then put the other side towards the filling side, try to unfold it, pinch both of the edges together tightly.

Repeat the same steps until finish all of the dough.

Arrange prepared pancakes onto a floured baking sheet or cutting board.

For frying the pancakes:

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil on a large nonskillet in medium high until oil is hot, then turn the temperature into low.

Put the pancakes into skillet, 3 or 4 pancakes at once, cooking until the bottom is golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Then turn over, go on cooking, for another 5 minutes, until the other side is golden brown.

Repeat the steps until all the pancakes are cooked.

For making the dipping sauce:
