I have no cornstarch. I have no arrowroot. I need something to help bind
together the filling for steamed (Asian) dumplings. I think flour would
be
too glutinous. Aside from going to the store, any suggestions?

Go here and see what you have.

Got any tapioca


Tapioca would probably take too long. I use it in sour cherry pies and it takes
a good 45 minutes even after partial cooking. Those little dumplings take just
a few minutes.
