5. Divide the dough into 30 to 32 dough balls. Flour a work surface and flatten each ball.

6. Roll out the dough into around 8cm round shape using a rolling pin.

Alternatively, you can simply use cookie cutter/cooking ring to cut into round shapes.

10. Combine the cooked lentils, the drained cabbage and all the other filling ingredients except corn starch into a bowl.

11. Add corn starch little by little until desired texture.

-Wrap the filling with Gyoza wrappers

-Make the Sauce.

14. Mix all the sauce ingredients together.

-Cook the Gyoza

15. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add Extra Virgin Sesame Oil. Put 8 to 10 Gyoza and heat over medium heat until the bottoms are nicely golden, then add a cup of water and cover with a lid. Cook until the water has evaporated.

16. Serve the Gyoza with the sauce. You can also add Japanese spicy seasoning into the sauce.
