Hui-Style Lamb Jiaozi (Chinese Dumplings)

"The Hui minority in China is Muslim, naturally they don't eat pork like the Han Chinese. Because of this they make all kinds of delicious foods with lamb. I ate these in Xi'an and in Beijing. They can be served Chinese style on a plate, or in a bowl of the broth they're boiled in, topped with cilantro and chopped green chilis."
