Introduction: How to Cook Potstickers Dumpling (Traditional Style)

This is a potstickers gyoza dumpling cooked in the traditional style. Gyoza potsticker dumplings are small, crispy, pan fried dumplings and are common in many dim sum places.

I remember years ago when I tried to cook a pack of frozen potstickers dumplings, I've always managed to get it to stick to the pan and ruin the dumpling. Nonetheless, it's still delicious, but loses a lot of it's visual appeal and 'dumpling-ness.' So I decided to give it another go and made these really delicious dumplings and sauce.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • Potstickers Dumplings
  • Oil
  • Water


  • Soy Sauce
  • Vinegar

  • Wooden spatula

Step 2: Heat Oil

  • Add two teaspoons of oil to a non-stick pan.
  • Heat it on low-medium heat.

Step 3: Add Dumplings

Step 4: Add Water

  • Add half a cup of water to the pan.
  • Bring up the heat to medium-high heat until the water boils off

Step 5: Fry

Enjoy you're dumplings!
