Pan Fried Dumplings

Affectionately known as Potstickers in the West and Guo Tie in the East, the pan fried dumpling is a crispy and juicy package that bursts with flavour, thanks to the fillings of pork, prawns, ginger and seasoning. The trick is to fry the dumpling till it is golden, then steam it quickly with the right amount of water. Eat it hot with some ginger-soaked sauce made of soy sauce, black vinegar and sesame oil.
