Здравствуйте! Hello everyone!
Last year in July, I traveled to Russian. On this trip, I discovered a Georgian dish called Khinkali. Khinkali is a soup dumpling, made with beef, pork, lamb, mushrooms or cheese (it is common to mix and match meats). It is notable for the large stem of dough coming off the top, which is used as a handle to hold the dumpling while consumed. I have gathered a few receipes because that is the only way for me to get them, since they are almost non-existant in Colorado.
I have a great tasting and accurate filling, but there is one thing I can't figure out. The dough. I need help getting the finished dumpling to have a smooth, glossy appearance with a supple bouncy texture. My current dough works, but appears puffy (for lack of a better term) and has a stiffer texture. I have attached a picture of the desired result.
PLEASE HELP lol
