To prepare the dough in the food processor, put the flour in the work bowl. With the machine running, add 3/4 cup water in a steady stream through the feeding tube. As soon as possible water has been added, stop the machine and check the dough. It should look rough and feel soft but firm enough to hold its shape when pinched. If necessary, add water by the teaspoon or flour by the tablespoon. When satisfied, run the machine for another 5 to 10 seconds to further knead inform a bowl around the blade. Avoid overworking the dough.
Alternatively, make the dough by hand. Put a bowl atop a kitchen towel to prevent it from slipping while you work. Put the flour in the bowl and make a well in the center. Use a wooden spoon or bamboo rice paddle to stir the flour while you add three-quarter cup water in a steady stream. Aim to evenly moisten the flour. When all of the water has been added, you will have lots of lumpy bits. Knead the dough in the bowl to bring all the lumps into one mass. If the dough does not come together easily, add water by the teaspoon.
Regardless of the mixing methods, transfer the dough and any bits to a work surface. Flour your work surface only if necessary, and then sparingly. Knead the dough with the heel of your hand for about 30 seconds for machine-made dough, or 2 minutes for handmade dough. The result should be nearly smooth in somewhat elastic. When you press on the dough, it should slowly bounce back, with a light impression of your finger remaining. Place the dough in a zip top plastic bag and sealed tightly closed, expelling excess air. Set aside to rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours. The dough will steam up the bag and become soft.
After resting, the dough can be used right away to form the wrappers. Or, refrigerate it overnight and return it to room temperature before using.
Pour the boiled water into a glass measuring cup after the bubbling action subsides, typically 30 to 90 seconds. Wait no more than 2 minutes after boiling to use the water.
