Suvir's crispy okra salad

Suvir’s crispy okra saladThe recipe for the salad can be viewed here. I like my okra not as crisped, so that some texture and color remains. The version pictured above has Italian parsley and shallots instead of cilantro and onion, respectively.

Apparently I have to work on my folding skills as well as my dumpling-making skills. I don’t feel comfortable posting a recipe for jiaozi until I’ve mastered those particular techniques. I could have rolled the dough thinner; in addition, out of twelve dumplings, one wasn’t sealed tightly enough. Otherwise, this was a good effort for a first attempt.
