Japanese Gyoza (饺子)

我是高木直子(曰本人气绘本天后或插画家)超级粉丝, 因为受到她的影响也很爱吃餃子。

Japanese Gyoza
(recipe source : from Nasi lemak Lover)

Filling ingredients
350g minced pork (prefer with some fat)
100g cabbage, chopped finely
1 stalk spring onion, chopped finely
1tsp grated ginger
1/2tbsp Japanese light soy sauce
1/2tsp Mirin
1/2tsp sake
3/4tsp salt or to taste
200g Gyoza wrappers

For each frying
1tbsp oil
1/4cup water

Dipping sauce
1tbsp rice vinegar
1tbsp soy sauce
1/8tsp La-Yu (Japanese chili oil ) – I use homemade chili oil, just deep fry dried chili with cooking oil, take chili oil and discard the fried chili.
Ginger, julienned

1. Mix filling ingredients in a mixing bowl, use a pair of chopsticks or use hand to mix
 till sticky.
2. Wrap filling with gyoza wrappers, refer how to wrap dumpling or gyoza steps.
3. In a medium non-stick frying pan, heat oil on medium high heat. When the pan is hot, place Gyoza in a row (touching each other) at the center and place the rest of gyoza to fill up the entire pan.
