The majority of dim sum specialties are wrapped in dough of some sort and there are many more than the five which are in their own MM recipe. But these five are the most common and basic, for in them, you'll find a great variety of fillings. Consequently, many of the classic dim sum recipes evolve from just these basic wrappers. Whenever you come across a recipe requiring one of the basic five, it will be so indicated, and all you have to do is locate the appropriate dough in MM.
These recipes will give you, at a glance, a quick comparison of the differences in ingredients used, techniques employed and cooking methods required for these wrappers. Once you master the techniques for making these five types of wrappers, you'll be well on your way to becoming a good dim sum chef! Source: "Dim Sum" by Rhoda Fong Yee.
