Hello, I’ve finished my 2nd load of washing!! Yay 🙂 ok, this will be my final post for the day before I rush out to do my usual things – grocery shopping. I’m happy cos today I’m meeting a few girlfriends for lunch and then we’re off to visit a friend of ours which recently had a baby boy…how exciting.. 🙂
Anyways, Wantons – I like them in soups and Pandabear likes them deep fried. So my favourite wantons are still the ones made by my mummy they are the best that I have ever tasted so far and they are so easy to make 🙂 she’s a great speedy cook similar to my grandma…
So here it is…
1 x packet of wonton skins
500g pork mince
1/2 small packet of prawns
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 table spoon of corn flour
2 -3 sprigs of spring onions
1. Mix the pork mince with minced garlic, minced the prawns, chopped spring onions to season add salt, pepper and tiny drizzle of seasame oil
2. Now the wanton skins comes in thin and thick ones for soup ones you can have thin skin for deep frying ones you can use thick skins (You can buy a full packet of wanton skins from any Asian Grocery Stores). So put a teaspoon of pork mixture into one of the square wanton skins in the centre and mix the corn flour with water (this is to dip around the edges of skin to it sticks together) do 3 folds at the top similar to Taiwanese Dumpling wrapping and there you have it wantons
3. You can refridgerate wantons for up to a few days or just freeze them for a few weeks. I usally put them into containers and take them out of freezer when I feel like wanton soup.
4. To cook the wantons – you can deep fried them in oil or if you prefer them in soup like me I cook them in chicken stock soup and chuck some cabbages along with some wantons and there you have it some wanton soup.
