      That's perfect! we're always trying to get those crusts on them with varying luck.

      I think this was the first time he got it right. Much harder than it looks!

      If he's willing to share his secret I'm all ears! I think we use too much katakuri-ko mixture, it bubbles up all around the gyouza and gets gummy.

      We've never managed to get them good and crusty either. I love gyoza. Do tell! ;-)

      He reports that he uses flour, not katakuriko (in the past he's used katakuriko and it did get all gummy). The ratio is 1 Tbsp flour to 1 cup water; add at the same time as you'd normally add water, cover and steam on medium-low about 10 minutes or until water has evaporated (it will make a "pachi pachi" sound at this point). Then remove lid, turn heat to med-high for one minute or until the crusts are golden and crispy.

      Hope that helps!
