We also find Dumplings in many other Asian cuisines such as Japanese and Korean.
Even in Russia they make dumplings, but with completely different shapes and flavors.
Chinese Dumplings are a very important traditional food for Chinese families all over the world.
Most Chinese families get together to celebrate great occasions such as Lunar New Year, festivities and other special occasions.
In all these cases they celebrate by preparing dumplings.
In addition to bringing good fortune, it also seems to bring wealth, as the shape of the Dumpling closely resembles that of a Chinese gold or silver ingot.
In China there has always been a custom of serving them for the Chinese New Year just before midnight to precisely wish good luck and wealth.

How can you tell when dumplings are done?
A simple way to tell when your dumplings are done is to use a toothpick.
Stick the toothpick through the dumpling and pull it straight out.
If the toothpick comes out clean, they’re cooked.
