    6. Take 1 teaspoon of the filling and place at the center of gyoza skin and seal.

    7. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil on a non-stick pan. Place the bottom of gyoza on the pan and let it brown and crisp for 3 minutes. Add a dash of water and cover the pan. Once the water has completely evaporated, remove gyoza from the pan. Garnish with chopped spring onion and serve warm.

    8. To make the dipping sauce, combine soy sauce, white distilled vinegar and few dashes of sesame oil if desired.
