Gyoza Zubereitung

Roasting, Steaming, Frying

Whether you dampen fry or deep fry the Gyoza depends on what they are serve with, and how economical you want to use oil/grease. We recommend to fry the presented variant in a frying pan on only one side until they get an appetizing dark brown color.


Gyoza are served as an appetizer or snack, as well as a side dish. They do not count as a main meal. Gyoza are eaten with your fingers or with chopsticks, once you have dipped them briefly into a sauce. The dip can be prepared or mixed individually by each person at the table.
