There are different kinds of dough. What kind of dim sum are you looking to make?

The transparent dough is made with primarily wheat starch and some cornstarch, boiling water, and shortening.

There are a lot of different white doughs.

I seem to remember that Ming Tsai had a pretty decent hargow/harghou skin recipe. Look him up, but I seem to remember that it was pretty simple like wheat starch and water? maybe rice flour and water? Good luck!

Potsticker dough, bao dough. Those will get you a long ways. Then make fresh flat rice noodles. Those are pretty basic but impressive. :)

Check your local asian grocery store (if there is one near you). They will have the right ingredients. If there is only an asian convenience store nearby, they might not have the ingreds. but the average grocery store probably won't have the right stuff.

Hello, i am involved in food import business and currently imported 2 different kinds of flours:
- rice flour
- gutinious rice flour
- tapioca flour
I would like to know what kinds of dim sums can be prepared using these or where else these can be used in Chinese cuisine? Many thanks
