Dumplings are commonly served as a delicious side dish or fun snack in Asia. Its Japanese cousin is the gyoza. What’s the difference between dumplings and gyozas? Turns out the two have a few key differences despite being quite similar.

 

Originating in China, the dumpling more commonly called the pot sticker is made of wheat flour dough wrapper filled with meat and/ or vegetables. This common side dish is cooked in many different ways. Dumplings are most commonly steamed, pan fried, deep fried or boiled.

 

While dumplings date back thousands of years, gyozas are much more of a recent innovation. During World War II, the Japanese ate dumplings back home using Japanese ingredients and preparation methods. The gyoza was soon born with a thinner dumpling wrapper and more finely chopped stuffing. The dish is most commonly pan-fried to create a wonderful crispy texture that also enhances its unique flavours.

 

While the two are similar, dumplings and gyoza have a distinctly different flavour, texture and cooking techniques that set them apart. You can find Crazy Dragon Vegetable Gyozas and Dumpling range in the freezer section at your local Woolworths and Coles.
