Gyoza seems like a complicated appetizer, but with ready-made wonton wrappers, they’re easy to make. Plus, they’re very delicious. Following this recipe will make about 36 gyoza.
Heat the sesame oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot and cabbage and sauté, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes.
If you want softer vegetables, add a ½ cup of water or so and put a lid on your pan, continuing to cook until desired tenderness. Set the vegetable mixture aside and let it cool slightly.
Now add about 1 tablespoon of the mixture to the middle of each wonton wrapper. Fold it over, moisten your fingers with water and seal it with your fingers.
Preheat the vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan at medium high heat. Add the gyoza and cook for approximately 1 minute on each side. Then add ¼ cup of water, place a lid on the pan and cook until the water evaporates.
Serve warm with gyoza dipping sauce.
