I love dumplings. The gyoza or pan-fried version. It is, however, not easy to execute. I’ve watched how it is done on TV and on Youtube plenty of times but it never turned out great. This is my second attempt and though better than my first attempt, still has loads of room for improvement.
For the filling, I mixed minced beef with a bit of water and hoi sin sauce and sesame oil. For the dumpling skins, I used ready made Swatow skins from NTUC. The next time I make these gyozas, I will make my own skin so that it would be better and more refined. This ready made method, though lacking in finesse, is still delicious and cheaper than eating gyozas from the coffeeshop.
