Step 1

Finely mince or grate the garlic and the ginger and slice the chives (or green onions).

Step 2

Mix all of the ingredients and stir well.Feel free to start without the hot water and add it bit by bit to your desired level (as it will water down the sauce's taste).

Step 3

Allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld and marinate.Then give the sauce a final taste and adjust any of the elements. Optionally garnish with some sesame seeds (raw or toasted).

Step 4

Once ready, serve it up with some storebought or homemade dumplings - like these mushroom dumplings and enjoy!

Step 5

I actually recommend making this gyoza sauce ahead. Though I recommend a minimum of 15 minutes 'marinating' before serving the dumpling sauce, it'll be even better with an hour. Better yet, prepare it and leave it overnight to marinate!You can store any leftover gyoza sauce in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. If you omit the fresh ingredients until right before serving, then the liquid base should be fine for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
