Steamed Vegetable Potstickers and Bok Choy Salad

I wanted to make this dish on Chinese new year and mother nature ruined my plan with snow. So next time when I was able to out and shop, first thing I went is my favorite Chinese store to buy ingredients for my pot stickers. I choose a cut short with ready made broccoli slaw for stuffing, well it was on sale and who don't love short cuts? But if you want you can take cabbage, carrot, broccoli or your choice of ingredients, even shredded chicken, tofu , paneer also works. I saved rest of the wrappers for other dish I wanted to make. You can make this wonton style, dumpling style  or even make Italian tortellini with same wrapper. To make Italian tortellini, just mix cheese and cooked spinach with spices and fold it.

Ingredients :

15 wrappers for pot sticker I use Circle wonton wrappers
1/2 packet of broccoli slaw mix
I was making this for appetizer that's why didn't use whole package.
as per taste soya sauce
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar or plain vinegar
dash of sriracha sauce
2 tsp. oil
1 thai chili
2 garlic
2 inch ginger

For dipping sauce

2 tbsp. Rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp. Spicy sesame oil
2 tbsp. soya sauce lite
1 finely chopped garlic
1 tsp. finely chopped ginger
Mix all this and keep it aside.


To make stuffing, take broccoli slaw and ginger, garlic and chili and in chopper , just chopped it finely.
Heat a wok, add oil in it and all slaw mix. Add soya sauce , vinegar, and sambal sauce and cook for 1 minute it.
Let it cool completely.
Take one wrapper, add one tbsp. of stuffing in the middle,
Apply water on the edges, and fold it in half moon.
then close it tightly with pinching it and tight it.
finish all the stuffing and make all pot stickers.
Heat up your steamer, apply oil where you are going to put this.

I used my dhokla steamer for this.

Put pot sticker in it , making sure it does not touch each other, otherwise it will stick to it and you can not pull them apart.
Steam it for 10 minutes , take it out and put the rest.
When all is done, serve hot  with dipping sauce.

You can shallow fry, deep fry this pot stickers too. 

I served this with Bok Choy salad which I get recipe from Minnie's blog

Bok Choy salad:

2 big bok Choy cut it and steamed it for 3 minutes. Make dressing with 2 tbsp. teriyaki sauce, soya sauce, rice vinegar and sambal sauce, spread over it and enjoy immediately. Added few strings of vegetables from broccoli slaw on top for the crunch. Peanut or any other nuts will go nice too for little extra crunch.
