The Japanese Gyoza Machine is a popular Japanese cooking instrument. The Japanese use this cooking tool not only for making sushi but also for making candies, soda, furikake, tempura, and other Japanese cooking instruments. This Japanese cooking tool has a cylindrical steel cylinder with a handle and a spiral-shaped dough hook. There is a slot in the top of the cylinder where the dough hooks to hold the hot rice. When the cylinder is turned on, a coil of strong wire is placed inside it that heats up the rice and then seals the inside of the cylinder.
Once the rice is cooked, the rice ball pours out into a bowl attached to the side of the Japanese gyoza machine. The rice must be mixed with enough water to make it sticky, and then the inside of the rice ball is cut into strips and the strips are placed into a pan that has been heated on a stove until soft, the pan is then thrown away. After this process, the gyozas are placed into the strainer. The thickness of the rice determines how light and crispy it is. Usually, there are two pieces of rice in each strainer.
Once the rice is cooked, the Japanese gyoza machine can be turned off, and the rice should be mixed with enough water to make it pliable, remove from the heat source and fold the dough in half, place the rice in the center of the doubled -up dough piece and pinch the edges to seal. Place the flattened dough piece into a pan, and allow it to rise until it reaches about double its original size. Once fully risen, the Japanese gyoza machine can be turned on again, and the rice ball can be fed into it one at a time, beginning with the center of the rice ball.
