Potstickers are a form of Chinese dumplings that are now popular around the world. The potstickers are made by wrapping a thin piece of dough around a filling made from vegetables or ground meat. The edges of the dough are crimped together to seal the filling inside. Potstickers are delicious when served with soy sauce or chili sauce as a dip. While the traditional method of cooking potstickers is to steam them, you can also deep fry potstickers for an alternative, but equally tasty dish.

Things You'll Need

  • Frozen potstickers
  • Deep fryer
  • Oil

Video of the Day

Add oil to the deep fryer.

Turn the deep fryer to 350 degrees and wait for the oil to heat up.

Put frozen potstickers into the oil and deep fry for two to three minutes. Use frozen potstickers; otherwise the insides of the potsticker will be undercooked and the outside will end up burnt.

Serve the potstickers while they are hot.
