I think I’ve perfected in making wontons, my way. The kind where the family cannot stop eating and where everything will be gone in seconds!
I’ve learnt that the secret is really to make the filling moist and flavourful. In the supermarket, they’re selling these small ready cut crab sticks. Yes, I know it’s processed but they add so much flavour and softness contrast to the dense minced chicken. For the chicken, I used tender fillet cute and just blend them. But I think my secret ingredient that the family likes without knowing what it is – carrots! Not traditional Chinese, I know but it adds natural sweetness to the filling.
Seasoning: soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, white pepper, cornstarch.
Method: Deep fry is the only way to go, baby! There is no way you can get crispy juicy wontons by air frying them…
