How to make Kimchi mandu with lemon-chili sauce
I love mandu. Mandu is gyoza or jiaozi in other languages. Essentially a Korean style of dumpling. Heres a recipe that I learned. This is completely vegan or vegetarian. You don't need meat for quality gyoza. :)
- Fry up the kimchi, tofu and soy bean sprouts in cooking oil until the sprouts are tender. Set aside.
- Add the chopped up green onion with the mixture.
- Add the sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper plus the kimchi juice. Mix thouroughly. Refrigerate.
- If you didn't make the wrappers already, make em. Otherwise use premade.
- Put some filling in middle of circle wrapper and pleat. You can watch how to pleat dumplings on youtube tutorials. I find Yongfooks very helpful to newbies.
- Oil up the pan and when heated, add dumplings. When its browning on bottom a bit, add 1/4 cup of water. Cover with lid and steam.
- Remove lid and let vapour escape. It should fry up the dumpling bottoms. Remove when crispy bottoms.
- Assemble the sauce, add all together and mix.
- Eat! Enjoy addicting mandu can be put in various Korean soups and stews. You can deep fry these too and you can freeze in a floured ziplock bag (flour added inside and shaken the dumplings) for a good month or so... but theyd probably be gone by then. ;)
