Learn How to Make Asian Dumplings from Scratch 4 Ways Ingredients Japanese Pan-Fried Chicken Gyoza 8 oz. uncooked ground chicken 2 cups shredded napa cabbage 2 Tbsp. finely chopped shallot 2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce 2 Tbsp. mirin (sweet rice wine) 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil 26 dumpling wrappers rolled thin 2 to 3 Tbsp. peanut oil or vegetable oil Tamari-Garlic Dipping Sauce 2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce 2 Tbsp. thinly sliced green onion 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tsp. sesame seeds Directions For filling, in a bowl combine chicken, cabbage, shallot, tamari, mirin, and sesame oil; mix well. Cover wrappers with a slightly damp towel to keep them from drying out. Fill a small bowl with water. Place a wrapper on the work surface. Spoon one heaping teaspoon filling onto the center of the wrapper. To shape dumpling, dip your finger in water and moisten the edges all around. Carson Downing Using your thumb and index finger on one hand, make a small pleat on one edge of the wrapper. Fold the pleat over and press into side of wrapper. Carson Downing Continue making a total of five to six pleats on one side of the wrapper. Carson Downing Bring the unpleated side of the wrapper up to the pleated side and pinch sides together to seal. Set shaped dumpling on a baking sheet and cover with a slightly damp towel. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Heat a 12-inch skillet or a large flat-bottom wok over medium-high until a bead of water sizzles and evaporates on contact. Add 1 Tbsp. of the peanut oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Place seven to 10 dumplings, smooth sides down, in skillet. Cook until dumplings start to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Test Kitchen Tip: Pan-frying is the most common way to cook gyoza. To protect yourself against splattering oil when you add water for the final steaming step, hover a lid over the pan as you pour the water into the hot skillet, then cover quickly. Carefully add ¼ cup water to skillet; immediately cover with a lid to contain any spitting oil. Steam dumplings until most of the water has evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes. Uncover; loosen dumplings with a spatula. They should be golden brown on bottom. Carefully wipe skillet dry; repeat with remaining oil and dumplings. Serve gyoza with Tamari-Garlic Dipping Sauce. Make-Ahead Tip: Batch-freezing is the best way to preserve the gyoza. Arrange uncooked dumplings on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze until dumplings are firm, 30 minutes to 1 hour. Transfer frozen dumplings to a resealable plastic freezer bag; freeze up to 3 months. Cook frozen dumplings as directed in Step 5, adding 2 minutes to steaming time.
