Gyozas (half soft half crispy japanese dumplings) are so easy to make, and cheap to make too.
So many types of food that I can make myself, i cant justify paying for them outside anymore (except for special occasions or on paydays. haha)
Here are step-by-step instructions in making a simple basic gyoza missfattyfoodie style!
Mix 500g of mince meat (preferably pork or chicken) with chopped carrots, onions and spring onions. Add one tbspn of sesame oil, some white pepper, 2 tbspm soy sauce, 1 tspn of rice wine (optional). Marinate for at least 30 minutes. 500g of meat makes about 50 dumplings, you can store the remainders in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
Get dumpling skins/gyoza skins from your local asian store for about $2 a pack.
Place a small amount of meat in the middle and fold it into the dumpling skin. Make sure the edge of the skin is sealed together with a bit of water. Place the dumplings on a surface with plain flour to prevent them from sticking to the bottom.
I dont have the skills to make the dumplings myself so i used the dumpling maker for help! These can be purchased from asian stores too, i bought it for $2 in Singapore.
Makes your life so much easierrrrrrrrrrrrr
wet the edge and press the dumpling together
tadaaa! recommended for beginners like me!
After you have finished folding, boil the dumplings first for about 5 minutes till the skin is translucent. Make sure not to stir it too much as they break easily.
After draining the remaining water, pan fry each side of the dumpling till the side is crispy and brown
Serve it with soysauce or along some noodle soup!
