Author Notes: Chinese dumplings have many styles: steamed, boiled, and fried. “Guotie” dumplings are slightly different than traditonal dumplings, I would like to say these dumplings have been dressed up because they are all stuck to the pot by a layer of golden, crispy cornstarch flakes. “Guotie” is the pretty cusion of dumplings… It is not fried dumpling or pot sticker,it is guotie!
