making dumplings like shirataki?? Glucomannan (Konjac) powder

This fellow fries up "dumplings" with just Glucomannan (Konjac) powder, water & a fry pan.

shirataki noodle" target="_blank">YouTube - how to make ur own shirataki noodle

I tried to make my own shirataki (konnyaku) following the recipe with pickling lime & Glucomannan powder & just had a pot of goo & threw it all out.

The fellow in the video doesn't explain how he uses these or the difference between this and shirataki or anything but low carbers have discussed shiratki forever & this is the first I've seen of something like this.

I haven't tried this yet, but I wonder if it could be used to make wraps like tortillas or used in recipes?

Anyone tried anything like this???

That's weird - he just pours water on the powder, doesn't even stir it up.
Does he just eat it like that with a little squirt of ranch dressing?
I'd like to try making some kind of tortilla or wrap like this.
I'll have to get some konjac powder.

maybe you could post this under the Recipe Suggestions board and see if anyone there knows anything about cooking it like this?

I love these although Denny hates them. It's a texture thing. You have to practice a few times to get them right and the longer you cook them the better. They are filling. But to make them really taste good you have to use some oil and that kills them for a DD. I use them when making doughless potstickers. I love them. I use coconut aminos and sesame oil along with olive oil to fry them. I haven't tried using the ranch like he does but have used the WF Asian Dressing with fairly good results.
