  4. Finely chop chives and mix with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil or other vegetable oil. Mix chive with pork before wrapping.
  5. Add around 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan (nonstick pan recommended for beginners), place the dumplings in. Pleats side up.
  6. Heat over medium fire until one side becomes browned. For a even crisper version, slow down the fire and turn over the dumpling and fry the pleats side until golden brown too.Swirl around 1/4 cup of water and then cover the lid immediately. Continue heating until all of the water is evaporated.
  7. Heat over slowest fire until the bottom becomes crispy and golden brown.
