The steaming time depends on the size of the dumplings. Anywhere from two to four tablespoons of the mix can be shaped and hence adjust the steaming time between 12-15 minutes.

Heat a steamer (if using a steel steamer plate, smear a little oil to prevent the dumplings from sticking to the surface) and when it is ready, arrange the dumpling in a layer and steam for 12 minutes.
