Crispy Apple Pie Fritters

Crispy Apple Pie Fritters

These look like regular gyoza, but the filling is a sweet-tart apple compote. Enjoy them freshly cooked.

Ingredients: 15

Gyoza skins
1 tablespoon
Lemon juice
A small amount
1 teaspoon
to taste
Frying oil
as needed


1. Cut the apple into 8 equal portions and cut into wedges.
2. Add the apples, lemon juice, sugar, and butter to a pot, sprinkle with cinnamon to taste, and boil over low heat until the apple softens.
3. Coat the edges of a gyoza skin with water, and wrap the apple compote just like wrapping up gyoza filling.
4. Fry in 170°C oil until golden brown.
5. This is them made with chocolate. They're succulent when freshly made.
6. This is the shortcut version made with apple jam.
7. Cheese-filled ones are best for bento.

Story Behind this Recipe

When I was making gyoza the other day, I had leftover bag of gyoza skins. I always fill them with cheese and stick them in bento, but I had a bunch, so I thought wrapping them in an apple compote would resemble apple pies served at fast food joints.
