Japanese Goyza Dumpling with pork filling

These tasty little dumplings are full of so much flavour, I urge you to give these a go at making. The wrappers can be purchased at your supermarket or Asian store. I probably will have to make these quite a few times until I can master the folding of the goyza.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups green cabbage, very finely chopped

  • 1 tsp salt, separated

  • 500 grams ground pork mince

  • 1 cup garlic chives, finely chopped

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 Tbsp corn flour

  • 2 tsp soy sauce

  • Goyza
  • 1 tsp cornflour – for tray

  • 40-45 wonton goyza wrappers (Gow Gee wrappers) 1 1/2 packets

  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil for cooking

  • Dipping Sauce
  • Soy sauce

  • Rice wine vinegar

Directions

  • Combine cabbage and 1/2 tsp of salt in a small bowl, then set aside for 20 minutes to allow the cabbage to wilt slightly.
  • Place remaining Filling ingredients ( including remaining 1/2 tsp salt) in a large bowl. Squeeze out any excess water from the cabbage and add to the bowl. Use your hands to mix the filling.
  • Sprinkle a baking tray with 1 tsp cornstarch.
  • Place 1 goyza wrapper on your palm ( left hand for right handed people). Dip your finger in water and run it around the edge of half the goyza wrapper to seal.
  • Place 1 slightly heaped tbsp of Filling on the wrapper. Fold wrapper over and use your right hand assisted by your left hand thumb to create 4 pleats. Press to seal and place on the tray. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
