Can you make momos ahead of time?

In this manner, how long can momos be stored?
I usually freeze them in medium freezer bags (about 8-9 pieces/bag) and date them. It's easier to pack them in small batches and thaw according to need. Just add the frozen momos to boiling water for 5 minutes and they are ready to use. I usually freeze them for 30 days (especially if they have meat as filling).
Subsequently, question is, how do you know when momos are cooked? Don't overdo the steaming, as the dough becomes dense and dry. The steaming time may vary upon the thickness of momos' cover. When you touch the momo then dough should not feel sticky to you. This means they are done and the momos will have a transparent look.
Beside above, can I make dumplings ahead of time?
You can make it days ahead and refrigerate, or freeze huge quantities. The dumplings whip up so quickly, and can be refrigerated for up to a day or frozen for months. You might consider making a double batch and freezing some to have on hand.
How do you store dumplings without them sticking?
If it makes any difference, I used store bought Shanghai dumpling wrappers. Freeze anything you're not going to use the same day you make them (as people have said, single layer on a cookie sheet or plate, with flour or parchment paper to keep them sticking to the plate). Shake them off into a ziploc bag.
