No one can resist this crispy appetizer. It is such a crowd pleaser especially in gathering or party. I will never order this dish at any Chinese restaurant or dim sum place as it is so easy to make it yourself. I’ve tried out so many version of it like stuffing it with beef, turkey, chicken and tofu but I still like the traditional kind which is pork and shrimps. I made these for Diana when she came home a few weeks ago.
400 grm ground pork
200 grm shrimp - roughly chopped
3 spring onions – finely chopped
1 carrot – finely grated
10 water chestnut – cut into small cubes
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 egg white
1 packet of wonton wrappers
1 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp soy sauce
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp sesame oil
Salt to taste
1. In a large mixing bowl mix all the ingredients together except for the wrappers. Mix well and set it aside to marinate for an hour.
2. There is a few ways of wrapping the wonton. For today I just wrap it in triangle shapes. Put a tsp of filling to the center of the wrapper, brush all the edges with a bit of water and fold it into triangle shape. Do the same to the rest of the filling.
3. Heat up you oil. Deep fry the wonton in badges until golden brown. Remove and drain the oil on some paper towels.
4. Serve warm or at room temperature with some chili sauce.
