There are many ways to cook dumplings, by steaming, boiling, frying or even combining these techniques. One way I like doing it best is to fry them a little to make them crisp and then quickly steaming them to cook the filling and make them tender (or steam first and then fry).
You can prepare dumplings in advance and keep in the refrigerator before cooking, just freeze them and put in boiling water for about 8-10 minutes.
This time I made a lot of dumplings, so I cooked some, left some in the fridge for a few days later, and froze the rest!
