How to make Rice Paper Dumplings

To make these easy and simple gyozas, you need to follow the instructions below.

Step 1

Firstly Prepare the filling in a mixing bowl, and shred the carrots and cabbage finely. Add tofu to it. It should be dry. Squeeze the excess water from it to dry it. Then cut the mushrooms and garlic into small cubes.

Step 2

Then, in the cooking process, in a pan, add oil and fry the mushrooms. After 5 minutes, add the remaining vegetables and tofu. Keep the flame medium. 

Step 3

When the vegetables are softened, add the remaining seasonings (soy sauce, black pepper, and sesame oil). Then turn off the flame, and it’s good to add chopped spring onions. Mix it and the filling is ready

Step 4

In the next step, pick up a piece of rice paper and dip it in water for a few seconds. Then place it in a flat place. Then add 1 tablespoon of filling to the center of it. Fold the gyoza properly so it won’t break while cooking. Pick up another piece of rice paper, dip it in water, and fold the first one into it so it will be non-breakable while cooking. Repeat this method with the remaining.

Tips & Tricks for Making Rice Paper Dumplings

  • Do not dip the rice papers in water for more than 5 minutes because they will be too soft and easy to break while folding them.
  • Cold water will be best for dipping rice paper.
  • Add as much oil as required while frying because rice papers are very sticky while frying.
  • These gyoza dumplings don’t stay crisp for a long time so it’s best to enjoy them immediately.
  • You can also store rice paper jiaozi for 2 weeks if it is properly stored.
  • You can use any type of sauce but I recommend trying a special gyoza sauce with it.
