followed by delicious (vegetarian)WON TON noodle soup night!
wonton night
We made way too many wontons to stuff into our asian stomachs' *wink*
Brief recipe for 150 wontons...
Filling ingredents:
dried mushroom, soaked and diced
water chestnuts, 1 can
1 box of TOFU or vegetarian pork paste (we used both types)
green onions,minced
garlic, minced
shallots, diced
carrots, chopped
seasoning: soy sauce, black pepper, corn starch, sugar, sesame oil, salt, ginger powder, vegetarian oyster sauce
What we did: Fry garlic and onions until golden brown. Add chopped carrots, mushrooms followed by water chestnuts. Stir in green onions and seasonings. Divide into 2 portions. Add vegetarian pork paste into one and mashed tofu in the other. (mashed tofu does not need to be cooked). Allow it to cool before wrapping. Fold each wrapper in half to form triangle and use egg white or water to stick the edges. Press edges to seal and shape
Boil or deep fry them:)
Boiling the wontons: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the won tons, making sure there is enough room for them to move about freely. Let the wontons boil for 5 - 8 minutes, until they rise to the top and the filling is cooked through. Remove from the pot with a slotted spoon.
Deep-frying the wontons: Heat oil for deep-frying. Add wonton in small batches and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
~~Wontons can be prepared ahead of time up to the cooking stage and frozen. Thaw before cooking.~~
