My mother's traditional recipe for Gyoza, Japanese dumplings. You can get the gyoza wrappers at Woolworths and Coles! The best way to learn how to make these is to watch the RECIPE VIDEO below!
1. Garlic chives is the authentic way to make this but if you can't find any, you can use either normal chives or the green part of shallots/scallions + 1 garlic clove. The flavour is not exactly the same but it is pretty similar.
2. Round wonton wrappers are also referred to as Gow Gee and Gyoza wrappers. They are available at Coles and Woolworths
in the refrigerator section alongside noodles (usually next to tofu, pasta / lasagna sheets).
They usually come in packs of 30 so you will need 2 packets.
3. FREEZING: In an airtight container, place raw gyoza in a single layer and top with cling wrap (for extra air tightness / or multiple layers). To cook, cook from frozen using the same method, just add a splash of extra water and cook for 2 minutes longer. It won't burn the underside because you add a bit of extra water.
REFRIGERATION: Same as frozen but won't require longer cook time / extra water.
4. Nutrition per piece, assuming 40 (largish) pieces.
