I’ve been cutting back on my grocery shopping trips so when I had a craving for potstickers/gyoza, rather than going out and buying a couple of packages of the ready made wrappers, I finally buckled down and decided to make them from scratch using this recipe.
The ingredients are simple: flour and salt and boiling water. And time … to let the dough hydrate and to roll them out.
Pleating also takes some time and, of course, practice.
After all that, I’m quite pleased with the results for a first try and WILL be making them again.

They look fabulous. You have amazing skills.
Thank you, but I just have a lot of free time. Even more now that I’m retired. 🙂
Your pleating looks fantasic. I love make Gyoza, I usually do a huge batch and freeze them. Using the pasta maker to roll them out saves quite a bit of time.
Thank you. I got better with the pleating as I got to the end. I was too lazy to dig out my pasta machine so I stuck with the rolling pin. 🙂
Wow! I’m amazed! The wraps/skins look so perfect!!! And the gyoza shape is so cute… I made gryoza a couple of days ago, but with store-bought wraps and the final shape of the dumplings was sooo ugly in comparison with yours! It looked like small versions of Polish dumplings 😉
Thank you. I was pleasantly surprised by my first effort.
