PotStickers are basically Oriental dumplings made with minced pork and Cabbage . Other ingredients can also be added to this recipe.

They are also known as  Gyoza - The main difference is that Potstickers are Chinese and Gyoza are Japanese , but they are essentially the same.

Potstickers & Gyoza are wrapped in a Won Ton Wrapper which is basically pasta made with flour , egg and water. However, I will be making the Won Ton Wrapper with Semolina & Water.
