Does anyone know how to fry gyoza?? I haven't tried making them from scratch. I buy them frozen. Whenever I try frying them -- according to the directions on the package -- they stick to the pan. The directions say to fry them in oil for a few minutes until they begin to brown, then add a bit of water, and let them cook covered for a few minutes. It does not work. I end up having to scrape them out with a spatula, leaving me with a shredded greasy mess. Any ideas??
On a related note, they sell two different types of vegetable gyoza at Trader Joes. One kind is made in the U.S. There are bit less expensive, and the individual dumplings are smaller. The other kind is "handmade" in Thailand. They taste much better than the smaller, less expensive ones, and imho, contain a better combination of vegetables. However, they often have gaps along the edges, so their insides tend to fall out. Steaming them seems to work if spray them with oil first, and don't move them around.
