I don't know why I haven't made these before - very easy and quick and a big hit with the whole family. I read a few recipes before I tried making them, but I didn't follow any really closely I was amazed how closely they tasted to ones I'd had in restaurants. I made 30 and froze half for next time (the photo is one I pulled from the freezer because we ate all the cooked ones before I thought about taking a picture!).
300gms pork mince
small hand full of garlic chives cut very small
half a clove of garlic very finely chopped
a tiny nub of ginger very finely chopped
2 whole water chestnuts finely chopped (I'll use more next time!)
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp soy sauce
1 packet of 30 wrappers (I used this brand from the supermarket)
1 tbs vegetable oil
Mix all the ingredients except wrappers and veg oil. Lay out the wrapper, wet all around the rim with wet fingers and put a teaspoon of mince mix in centre. fold in half and pinch around the rim to close.
Heat veg oil over high heat in a frypan and put the gyozas in. When nicely brown on bottom, lower heat and add a bit of water (about 1/4 cup) and put lid on for 10 or so mins until water all absorbed. Serve with dipping sauce of 2:1 rice vinegar to soy sauce with a few drops of sesame oil.
