Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 teaspoons japanese soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon cornflour
2 teaspoons oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 spring onion, finely chopped
150g finely chopped chinese cabbage
2-3 drops sesame oil
12 gow gee or gyoza wrappers
3 teaspoons oil, extra
japanese soy sauce, to serve

Method

  1. Combine the soy sauce, sugar and cornflour in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over high heat, swirling the oil around in the pan to coat. Add the garlic, ginger and spring onion and stir-fry for just a few seconds, or until aromatic but not burning. Add the cabbage and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until the cabbage is very soft. Quickly stir the soy sauce mixture and pour into the frying pan. Stir for 1 minute, or until the cabbage is coated in the sauce. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Stir through the sesame oil.
  3. Sit a gow gee wrapper in the palm of your hand. Place 2 level teaspoons of the cabbage mixture in the centre of the wrapper. Use a finger to rub water around the edge of the wrapper and press the sides together to seal. Rub a little more water along the rim of the seam and pleat together. Gently tap the bottom of the gyoza on a work surface to flatten. Repeat this process with the remaining wrappers and cabbage mixture.
  4. Heat the extra oil in a heavy-based frying pan over high heat and cook the dumplings for 2 minutes, without moving them. Pour 60 ml water into the pan and quickly cover with a lid (be careful as the oil water will splutter on contact with the hot oil). Cook for a further minute, then give the frying pan a few firm shakes to help remove any stuck on bits. Cook for another minute, or until the water has evaporated and the wrappers are cooked.
  5. Serve immediately with the soy sauce.
