About this recipe:I have been craving for Pot Stickers for a while and decided to make some myself. I could find the usual dumpling skin I used to make Pot Stickers. I bought normal round wanton skin instead. My son likes it so much he requested I made it again; 3 days in a row! My husband wants soup so I cooked the dumplings with Chicken Broth and Pot Stickers became Dumpling Soup.
Mix all ingredients well, except wanton skin, cooking oil and dipping sauce ingredients.
Preferably set aside for half an hour before you start making the dumplings.
Add some filling onto the wanton skin. Dab some water onto the edge of the skin and fold the wanton skin into half, but not completely. Starting from one corner of the skin, make small pleats on the one side of the wanton skin and press the pleats down to stick it to the other side of the wanton skin.
Heat pan with a teaspoon of oil.
Place pot stickers in pan and close.
Pan fry both sides for 30 seconds each. You can skip this step if you like.
(On the 3rd side) Add 3-4 tablespoon chicken stock or water, cover pan to let cook for 5 minutes or till stock is dry.
Dish and serve with dipping sauce.
If you are using a regular flying pan, you will just need to have a cover and cook a minute or 2 longer.
Traditional Pot Sticker are fried only on one side, I like it slightly brown on the other 2 sides, hence I did Step 6. You can skip that if you like.
