Wholewheat Veggie Potstickers

You know how much Snehanshu enjoys potstickers. From store bought wrappers to home made hand rolled wrappers, I make them a lot. But now, it was time to go even more healthy by using wholewheat flour. We love them so much that we just make a meal with potstickers. We all know the wholewheat is always a better option than all purpose flour for our family. These are not just guilt-free, but a very healthy option for dieters too. It is just like enjoying Indian roti with veggies :)

Since a very long time I have been wanting to show you an easy way to peel garlic specially for recipes that need a lot of them. My aunty told me about this Martha Stewart's trick, and it works!! Just place few cloves of garlic in a stainless steel container with a lid or a jar with a lid and shake well. I mean SHAKE WELL...yes, it is a workout :) In around 30 seconds to a minute you will have all garlic peels separated :) Perfect for Schezwan Sauce!
Here is Martha Stewart's video

Start with potsticker or dumpling filling.
Select your veggies.
Finely mince the veggies or use a food processor to help you do that.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok or a pan. Saute 1/4 cup minced onions, 1 tbsp. ginger and 1 tbsp. garlic for 2-3 minutes. Saute 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper too.
Mince 1 carrot and few beans. Cook them with other veggies till they are slightly tender.
Add a tsp. of salt. Add 1/4 cup finely chopped cabbage and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add 1 tsp. vinegar.
Add spring greens, and let the filling cool.

To make whole wheat dough:
Take 1 cup regular wholewheat flour. Add a tsp. of salt and using around 1/4 cup of water make a stiff dough. Knead the dough well and let it rest for 10-15 minutes. Divide into 20-25 equal parts. Using dry flour roll each part into a small disc.

Use dry flour to prevent dough from sticking.

Stuff with veggie filling and fold into potstickers.

If you are not able to fold into potstickers, just bring the sides together and pinch the dough to appear like potlis or draw string bag :)

Spread a tsp. of oil in a flat pan. Heat it. Place each potsticker and fry till it is crisp at the bottom.

For the rest of it to cook, add 1/2 cup water to the pan and cover it with a lid. Let the dough steam well. Add more water if needed.

When done, serve immedietly with soy or homemade schezwan sauce.

Healthy and Delicious!!


  1. how long do i need to steam the potstickers?

    1. 8-10 minutes till the water evaporates and the dough is cooked.

  2. Hi Shital - I found your blog from ED. This is such a wonderful blog...kudos to you. I have a suggestion: Can you please write out the entire recipe either before you start posting pics or at the very end? So we dont have to scroll through pics to get the recipe.

    Its great you are posting some many pics for better understanding but sometimes when we have bad coverage its hard to get the recipe which kinda takes away from the beauty of this blog.
