Many fans revealed simple methods they follow to cook the frozen snack, ranging from pan fried to steam and even using the air fryer. 

One woman shared incredible pictures of her ‘quick lunch’, explaining how she pan fried the gyozas and then added a dash of water and cooked them until they crisp.

‘First you have to pan fry them on the two flat sides, so they get some colour and brown a little,’ she explained. 

‘After this you put a small amount, around half a cup of water to soften them and cover with a lid. Then take the lid off, and when all the water has dissolved, it’s ready.’

Another woman suggested: ‘Pan fry, then add a little water and white vinegar cover till water evaporates. My Japanese friend taught me that method.’ 

Another woman who cut meat out of her diet said her favourite quick-and-easy meal is the vegetable gyoza with an Asian salad pack

One man said: 'I bought a bag of the frozen Aldi Gyozas. Cooked eight minutes in my air fryer. Very tasty!'

She added: ‘I think I’ve bought a million of these. My son loves them – COVID-19 lockdown survival food.’ 

Another shopper said cooked her gyozas in an air fryer.

‘Eight minutes at 180 degrees with spray oil. Four mins at 160 degrees with boiling water in bottom pan. Pretty good for the first time air fryer owner,’ she said.

‘Personally, I think I would prefer less time for the cooking and more time for steaming.’
