  4. Remove the dough onto a floured surface and dip your thumb into flour.  Poke a hole in the middle of the dough ball. Stretch it gently with your hands t form a large doughnut that is even around. 
  5. Cut it in half and then cut each strip into 1” pieces. 
  6. Cover all dough when not in use with a damp cloth to prevent them drying out. 
  7. Press one dough ball in some flour to coat.  Using a small rolling pin roll into a circle.  Press on the edges of the dough moving the disk around so that the edges are thinner than the middle.

  9. Keep covered until ready to cook
  10. Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.  Arrange dumplings and let them sear until golden brown on one side. Remove some of the oil if too much. Add about 2-3tbsp water to the pan with the dumplings and cover immediately with a lid to steam. Steam for 2 minutes. 
  11. Remove the dumplings and wipe out the pan. Place the pan over medium heat again and sprinkle the remaining grated cheese on top.  Once it started to melt, place the dumplings back in. Continue to cook until the cheese looks lacey and starting to crisp and brown.  Turn off the heat and let cool until the cheese is hardened.
