William Cai's Tomato and Egg Jiaozi (Chinese Dumplings)

My daughter's Chinese classmate submitted this recipe for the Fourth Grade cookbook. He writes "My Grandma made it for New Year's when I was 8 years old. . . . We gathered at the table and wrestled for dumplings. Oh! It was so good! It was yummy, juicy, and tasty! Delicious! You got to try it!" Jiaozi are a common fast-food lunch in China, sold in garage-sized restaurants along the street. At Chinese New Year, families sit around stuffing dumplings together.
