Prepare Filling: In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix with clean hands, squeezing mixture until the meat and ingredients are thoroughly combined. Set aside the meat filling.
Rolling out the wrappers: With clean hands roll the ball of dough out into a thick 9-inch long cylinder. Cut the cylinder width-wise into twelve pieces. Set each piece in a row with end down on the cutting board. Sprinkle lightly with flour.
On a floured board, using a wooden dowel (a short wooden rolling pin about 2 - inches in diameter) to roll one piece to a 3 1/4-inch circle. Place a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center of the circle. Close by pleating the ends.
