Jiǎozi (饺子) - my favourite food of all time. Specifically, the boiled version, dipped in soy sauce mixed with garlic.

Gods, I LOVE them to bits. The fact I only get to eat them once or twice a year make them all the more special.

I do love potstickers! I think the traditional way of making them is to steam them first and then pan fry. It is very common where I'm from (northern China, like further north than BeiJing), however, I don't remember eating them often at Chinese New Year. They are very profilic in restaurants but the only time I remember my family making them is to pan fry left over boiled Jiǎozi. So, not the 'correct' way of making them but still delicious! I think the Japanese version's flour wrapping is thinner than the Chinese version.

Pork and garlic chives! Or, pork and green capsicum! Or, pork and Chinese cabbage! You get the picture.
