1. In a small cup add water and salt. Mix well and set aside.
2. Mix dry ingredients (plain flour, gluten, tapioca flour) in a bowl. Transfer to the "Philips Pasta Maker" equipped with "0.8mm sheet pasta disk". Close lid.
3. Turn the machine on and choose the setting. Press Start.
4. Slowly pour water mix through the opening in the lid.
5. Gyoza sheet will begin to form and it will come out within 3 minutes. Stop the machine once when the first 10cm are out, then cut them off. Put them back in the machine's mixing tank. That's because the first gyoza sheet is not smooth enough ;-)
6. Resume the machine and the gyoza sheet will be extruded again, as you fold the sheet, dust with potato starch. Do not cut it until the machine stops.
7. Lightly dust your chopping board with potato starch. Lay the sheet of dough on it and cut it out using a circle cookie cutter (about 9cm diameter). Dust the cut out wrappers with katakuriko/potato starch if necessary and set aside. Repeat as many times as you can (do not throw away the excess sheet).
8. Enjoy with your favorite filling!
9. Spread the excess cuts on an oven sheet, sprinkle ketchup and cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes at 200℃. Quick pizza is done :)
If you want to make them thinner, you can stretch the sheet with a rolling pin before cutting each circle.
Prepare the silicone mould (here I use a 4cm diameter * 15-hole mould).
2. In a small cup, add sugar and cream stabilizer. Mix and set aside. Better use stabilizer if your cream is less than 35% fat.
3. In another bowl, add whipping cream and blend with an electric hand mixer for a few seconds. Then add the sugar mix. Beat until firm peaks form.
4. Add the whipped cream in the moulds. About 1 tsp in each mould. Flatten the cream top. Place the mango bits on the cream. Then cover with the remaining whipped cream. Flatten the top.
5. Move to the freezer until firm.
6.Making mochi (Only once the filling is firm!)
In a bowl, add glutinous rice flour, sugar and water. Mix well. Transfer into a cooking pot.
7. Heat over medium heat, stir constantly, until smooth and silky (about 2 to 4 minutes).
8. Spread katakuriko/potato starch onto your working surface or chopping board. Place the mochi. Divide into 15 pieces.
9. Take one mochi and shape it in a small disk (a bit bigger than 4cm). Pull out one filling from the freezer. Pull the edges of the mochi disc over the filling so as to cover it. Press together the edges to seal well. Smoothen the mochi by rolling it on the dusted board. Repeat with the others.
10. Keep in the fridge until the filling is unfrozen. Enjoy :)

Servings: about 12 to 15 gyoza wrappers
100g cake flour/plain flour (T45)
1/3 tsp fine salt
1/2 tbsp rice flour (optional)
50ml boiled water
1. Add flour, salt and rice flour into a large bowl and stir well. Add hot water and stir with a rubber spatula. Then knead the dough by hand for about 1 to 2 minutes until it gets smooth. You can shape it into a ball.
2. Let the dough sit in the bowl for about 15 min, covered with a damp cloth.
3. Remove the bowl of your stand mixer and attach the pasta roller to it.
4. Take some of the dough (about 1/3), shape into an oval. Flatten it and dust it with flour on both sides.
5. Feed the dough through the pasta roller (setting 1 - thickest), at least 3 to 5 times or until the dough is smooth. Turn dial to the thickness setting 3 or 4 and run the dough through once or twice. Repeat (once or twice) at each following position until you reach setting 8. The target thickness really depends on your own preference. I like thin skin, so I roll it until setting 8 :)
6. Lay the rolled out sheet of dough on a cutting board and cut it out, using a circle cookie cutter (8~9cm diameter suggested). Dust the cut out wrappers with katakuriko/potato starch and set aside. Repeat as many times as you can.
Gather all the scrap dough, put it all together and re-roll it a few times until it becomes thin layers again.
