Fried Wantons 炸云吞



Having eaten a bowl of char siew and wanton noodles on Sunday, I decided to make my own wantons for snacking. It costs me $1 for 4 extra pcs of wanton.

Simple ingredients n marinade to make these.

I made these with minced pork which can be replaced with minced chicken too.

Recipe
1 packet of wanton skins 
Minced pork about 120 gm
1/3 carrot diced finely 
3 pcs of spring onions diced
1 heaped teaspoon corn flour
1 teaspoon Kikkoman soy sauce
1 teaspoon Hua diao wine 
Sprinkle of white pepper
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1/2 tsp of sugar

Note - usually use water chestnuts in place of carrots.

Wanton skins

Method
Just mix all the ingredients together except the wanton skins 


Then put 1 small teaspoon of filling in the middle of the skin

Dab water round 2 sides of skin n fold over into a triangle shape
Finish the rest in similar style

Heat oil in wok till hot
Fry the wantons in batches n drain the oil  using paper towels before serving

Frying 

Yummy n crunchy

This is another style of wanton wrapping

Eat them on their own or with your dipping sauce 

Note - cannot keep these overnight so only fry those amount that you want to eat
