Master making these Japanese dumplings at home by learning the easiest fold-and-pleat technique! Don’t be intimited: making gyoza is much easier than you think.
1 Place one wrapper on the palm of your hand. Put 1 teaspoon filling in the center.
2 Brush outer edges of the wrapper with water. Fold it in half.
3 Start making a pleat on top of the wrapper. As you fold each pleat, press the pleat tightly against the wrapper using your other thumb and index finger.
