40 minutes


  • 300 g cup mushrooms finely diced
  • 1 ½ tbsp ginger minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 200 g Chinese cabbage finely diced
  • 1 tsp tamari sauce
  • ½ bunch fresh chives finally chopped
  • 25 gyoza wrappers round Gow Gee pastry
  • vegetable oil for cooking
  • water


  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp ginger minced
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 fresh chilli finally sliced


  • 1 tbsp spring onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds toasted


  • Combine the dipping sauce ingredients into a jar and shake well. Set aside until you're ready to serve.
  • To make the gyoza, heat a drizzle of vegetable oil in a wok or large heavy base fry pan with high sides on medium heat. Add ginger and garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes, then add the mushrooms to the pan. Cook until the mushrooms turn a golden brown colour.
  • Add the wombok cabbage and stir through. After 1 minute or once the cabbage has wilted down and turned translucent, add 1 tsp tamari or soy sauce. Allow to simmer for a further 2 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat, add the Asian chives, and stir through.
  • Transfer the gyoza mixture to a sieve to drain off any excess liquid while it cools down.
  • Once the mix has completely cooled down, the gyoza can be wrapped. Place 1 1/2 tsp (depending on how big your wrappers are) of mixture into the center of the wrapper. Brush the edge of the wrapper with water, then fold over the wrap so it looks like a half moon shape. Gently press the wrapper seams together along the joined seam. Set aside while the rest are made. Lay a tea towel over the top to prevent them from drying out.
  • Heat up a heavy base fry pan to medium-high heat. Add a good drizzle of vegetable oil and place the gyoza’s bottom side down (so the seam is at the top). Allow to fry for a few minutes until the base of the pastry is a golden brown colour. Add a splash of water to the pan (stand back to prevent it staying back on you) and place a lid on to steam them for a couple of minutes. Once the pastry has changed to a transparent colour and all the water has evaporated gently remove them from the pan. Set them aside while the remainder are cooked.
  • Serve the gyoza on a platter with the dipping sauce in a small bowl to the side. Sprinkle over the top toasted sesame seeds and freshly sliced Asian shallots.
