Vegetarian Crispy Wontons

Prep:

Cook:

The crispy skins of deep-fried wontons are irresistible. With vegetarian filling option, you can make them at home to treat your guests during holiday.

15-20 wonton pastries

Wonton filling

  • Chinese chives
  • 3 Chinese mushrooms (soaked in hot water overnight)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 handful of coriander
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 leaves of Chinese leaf

Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Sesame oil to cover

The Filling

  • Finely chop the vegetables and place in a large prep bowl
  • Season with soy sauce, a pinch of sugar and cover with sesame oil
  • Mix well

The Folding

  • Place 1 teaspoon filling in the centre of the pastry
  • Using the tip of your finger wet all sides of the pastry with cold water
  • Fold bottom corner over the filling to the top corner and press pastry down to seal all sides (to form a triangle)
  • Holding the base of the filling with your thumbs, pull the 2 corners of the triangle towards each other, overlap the ends and then press together to form a ‘trough’ shape
  • Place aside and fold all wontons the same way

Cooking

  • Deep fry the wontons at 180°C until golden brown. They usually start to float once cooked as there will be air inside the parcels
  • Serve with sweet chilli sauce on the side
