These little pockets are ideal for snack or parties. Is simple and really easy to make.Ingredients :

2) Place 1 tsp of filling in the centre of the wanton wrapper. Brush the edges with water and then gather up to the points and press them firmly together to make a pouch.

Yum yum! A week ago I was grocery shopping and on impulse I bought some wanton skin. I wanted to make fish paste but then too much work, so I thought I'd just mince some chicken and prawns and make fried wantons and voila! Your recipe comes in handy! Will let you know when I have tried it out! ;)
