There are many varieties of dumplings and has a different name in different countries, in India & Nepal steamed dumplings are called momos.

Likewise, Pan fried dumplings in japan it’s called gyozas and in China it’s called potstickers.

But homemade is the best!!!😄

What are potstickers/pan fried dumplings?

Potstickers are a combination of fried+steamed dumplings. Dumplings are fried from bottom in a nonstick pan and then steamed with a small amount of water.

When all the water is evaporated and the dumplings turn translucent. Then it’s ready!🥟

Top tips:

  • Don’t overknead the dough otherwise it will become chewy, the dough should be tough enough that it holds the shape of dumplings.
  • Feel free to add tofu, paneer or meat of your choice to the stuffing.
  • If you don’t prefer pan-fried then you can steam it in a steamer for 10-12 minutes.
  • Always roll the wrapper thin if the wrapper is thick dumplings will become rubbery and chewy.
  • If you have added excess water to the flour and the dough becomes sticky then you can add some more flour to it and knead it.
