Cooking Instructions for 1 pack of 12 Dumplings

This is for cooking the dumplings pot-sticker style. This gives you a crunchy base and a soft steamed top and is a popular cooking style in China. You can just steam without oil in which case just omit the first stage and add the dumplings to the pan and add the water.

What you need: 

  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil

  • 1 pack of frozen dumplings

  • 160ml of cold water

  • Non-stick frying pan with lid 

Note: cook from frozen


  1. Add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil into a non-stick frying pan. Heat up the pan on medium heat until it is hot. Make sure the oil swirled around the surface of the pan.

  2. Place the frozen dumplings (flat side down) into the pan (use a pair of tongs). To prevent burning the dumplings give the pan a little shake so the oil is evenly distributed under each one.

  3. Pan fry the dumplings for 30 seconds on medium high heat.

  4. Now add 160ml of cold water into the pan and immediately cover with a lid this will create a steamer affect.

  5. Allow the water to boil (approximately 8-10 minutes) on a low rolling boil until it all evaporates. Once this happens continue to fry the dumplings for a further minute until the base is crispy and golden. Serve immediately.

  6. Enjoy the dumplings with the provided dipping sauce and chilli oil (optional).
