Boiled gyoza (sui-gyoza) is very soft and can be eaten hot or cold.

Steamed gyoza (mushi-gyoza) is also soft and is eaten hot. Deep-fried gyoza (age-gyoza) can be finger food, so it's suitable for a potluck dish.

The most common way to cook gyoza is pan-fried.

Bottoms of gyoza dumplings should be brown and crunchy.
