  1. Dissolve the yeast in ½ cup warm water and let it proof for 10 minutes.
  2. Put the flour into a large bowl.
  3. Mix in the salt and yeast mixture and gradually add ½ cup water, or enough to prepare a soft moist dough.
  4. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, sprinkling with flour if necessary to ease handling.
  5. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise for 1 hour.
  6. Punch down the dough, which is now ready to prepare the dumplings.
  7. Mix the pumpkin and the onions together in a pan.

  10. Uncover the pan and cook for 10 minutes more.
  11. Drain the mixture through a metal sieve to pour off all the liquid.
  12. Turn out into a bowl and stir in the chile flakes. Cool.
  13. Roll out the dough into a long sausage shape about 3 inches in diameter.
  14. Pull off ⅓ cup dough, about 2 ounces, and roll this out into a pancake about 4 inches in diameter and ¼ inch thick.
  15. Put 1 generous tablespoon of the stuffing into the center and fold over the top toward the center.
  16. Then fold the left and right sides over toward the center to shape a closed triangle.
  17. Pinch the folds together to seal.
  18. Paint the top of the dumpling with egg glaze and put on an oiled baking sheet.
