- STEP 1
First, start by making your dough. In a bowl, combine the flour with water and mix using a fork. Once it comes together, dust your work surface with flour. Now knead the dough until well combined, adding flour so it isn't sticky. This should take around 6/7 minutes. Roll the dough into a ball and set aside in a bowl covered with cling film.
- STEP 2
Now, chop and grate your vegetables. Add 1tsp oil into a pan and add the cabbage, carrot, mushrooms and ginger. Cook for 5 minutes on a low/medium heat. Once it looks cooked, add the soy sauce and sesame seeds ad stir. Now cook until the liquid has evaporated. Leave aside to cool
- STEP 3
Back to the dough. Place on your floured work surface and roll into a long sausage shape. Now cut into 18 individual portions. Put some water in a small bowl next to the dough, you will need this soon.
- STEP 4
Flour the surface well and add one piece of dough. Now roll out into a circle as thin as you can. Take the dough in your hand and spoon a small amount of the filling into the centre. Now for the water, wet the tip of a finger and dab it around one half of the edge. Then fold the other half over and pinch the edges together, you should end up with a semi circle shape. Place bottom down on the work surface to make a flat bottom, this will make a good base when frying.
- STEP 5
Heat a frying pan on a medium heat, make sure you have a lid that fits the pan. Add 1tsp of oil to the frying pan and then place the gyoza in one at a time to the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the base is nice and brown. Now, add some water to the frying pan and cover with the lid immediately. Steam for 3-4 minutes. Serve with some dipping sauce. I love sweet chilli sauce with these!
