Crispy Pan-Fried Mandu (Korean Dumplings) filled with Kimchi, Mushrooms, and rice noodles! This combination has quickly become one of my favorites. And of course, they are equally delicious steamed and boiled as well.
Who doesn’t love some good dumplings? You might be familiar with the Chinese Jiaozi or Japanese Gyoza, but Koreans have an equally delicious treat called Mandu. As with everything, these Korean dumplings are better home-made. They are easy, delicious, and super customizable — feel free to change up the filling as you like!
For this recipe, I used the “Pinch-Braid” Fold. My #1 tip for getting the perfect Pinch-Braid Fold is to make sure that the tip of each fold goes below the next fold! Do exactly that and all your folds will align perfectly like a braid.
