Jiaozi is a Chinese dumpling which consists of minced meat and chopped vegetables wrapped into a piece of dough.

Jiaozi are usually boiled or steamed. Jiaozi is a traditional dish for Chinese New Year's Eve. Family members would get together to make dumplings.

If they are shallow fried, they are called guotie or potstickers. Compared to wontons (dumplings served boiled in a soup), jiaozi have a thicker skin and are longer.
