RECIPE: Nozawana Oyaki (Japanese Stuffed Dumpling)


Oyaki are chewy stuffed dumplings that are a rustic comfort food from Nagano Prefecture. The dough is made from wheat flour or a mixture of wheat and buckwheat flour which is stuffed with a variety of local, seasonal ingredients. 

Serves: 6-8 pieces


  • 150g all-purpose flour
  • 100ml water
  • 1 package Nozawana Pickles
  • Cooking oil


  1. Knead the flour and water in a bowl until doughy. Let sit in the fridge for 30 minutes. Knead more and/or add a bit of cooking oil if necessary to get a doughy texture.
  2. Spread some of the dough into a thin layer and wrap it around a spoonful of the nozawana pickles. Set aside and and repeat to make 10 dumplings. 
  3. Add a bit of cooking oil to a pan on medium heat. Add the dumplings from step 2 and cook for about 20 mins, turning over occasionally to brown both sides.
