Spicy Ramen with Pan-Fried Gyoza


I love to make loads of dumplings in advance and then freeze them for future use - this can be very useful for days when you don't have any real time to cook something big. If you don't like to make homemade dumplings, then buy frozen ones, there are quite some good ones out there too.

This spicy ramen version of mine is very simple and only needs minimal preparation. The broth is only made with water, dashi powder, soy sauce, mirin and chili oil. Then I pan-fry my frozen homemade gyoza, add a semi boiled egg, a few slices of kamaboko (fish cake), chopped green onions and toasted sesame seeds and tadaah...: a delicious spicy ramen is ready to be consumed ;).

I intend to make another charaben tomorrow. But to be honest, I have not been so inspired lately, I don't have real motivation to make cute bentos either. What should I make next..?

By the way, I got an award from Melonpan a few days ago. Thank you so much, Manja :), you're too kind !! Apparently I have got to tell 7 things about myself. Hmm...At the moment I am not sure what to write, so let me just write some random stuffs about me.
  • I can be very childish.
  • I am often lazy too ;).
  • At the moment I am in love with Pip Studio products :)!
  • I love to hang around doing nothing, as have been mentioned above - I am lazy ...;).
  • I think I am not really able to multi-task - bad, bad, bad...!!
  • I am trilingual.
  • One day, I would really love to visit Japan and Korea for real, not just the airports ;).

  1. Your bento boxes are always so tempting and beautiful. :) Love spicy ramen. Happy weekend to you.

  2. Amazing bento boxes, always! I love gyoza *_*

  3. Wow, what a delicious colourful bento box.. looks fantastic..:)

  4. I love gyoza, but my small freezer is always so full I couldn't place any dumplings without squashing them, so I make them rarely. I should do like you and my mum: she always made about 50 dumplings and froze at least half of them.
    Thank you for sharing some personal details. I'm also dreaming of visiting Japan!
    Lovely bento, as always!

  5. I'm all about making and freezing my dumplings. That's mostly because its such a chore for me I'd rather just bang out a couple dozen in one big sitting.

    I haven't seend a dessert on here for a while...maybe you'll be inspired to do one of those!
