Making wonton couldn’t be easier and the ingredients you need is very simple. All you need is about half pound of very lean minced pork and marinate them in one tablespoon of oyster sauce, one tablespoon of light soy sauce and one teaspoon of Chinese rice wine or dry sherry if you don’t have. A few drops of sesame oil and also half teaspoon of sugar and one teaspoon of – or a dash of some pepper and I’ve chopped three spring onions, green onions finely chopped and then mixed in it and the pork here, I’ve already marinated them inside and also you need a pack of the wonton pastry which you can buy in any Asian supermarket. This pack probably can make 43 or 44 around wonton. Let me show you how to put them together. Before we start making wonton, I need to show you, once you open the wonton pastry pack, you need to put a damp cloth to cover the wonton pastry otherwise, it will dry up. You always need some water just handy in case we need to use them to seal the wontons. Alright, we’re good to go and let’s start making wontons. Get one pastry in front of you and then put about a thumb size of pork mixture and fold the pastry into a triangle, press both sides to seal it and then fold your right side in the front and fold your left side in the back and press the middle again to seal it and that’s it. Let me show you again. Put one pastry in front of you and add some pork mixture in the middle of the pastry, about your thumb size then fold the pastry into a triangle and press both sides to seal. Then fold the right sides in the front and fold the left side in the back and press in the center again to seal it. That’s it. When you finish making the wontons, now we’re going to make wonton soup so first of all, we need to prepare the bowls there and allow six to 10 for each person. So we have four here so I’m going to give them 6 to 10. You can eat as a starter or eat as a main dish. If you eat as a main dish, add some noodles in it and tonight, I’m just going to make it as a starter. So we put one teaspoon of fresh chopped coriander and dash of salt, also one teaspoon of chili sauce. If you don’t like it spicy, you can skip this one and then a few drops of sesame oil also half teaspoon of chicken powder. We just leave them here and then we make the wonton soup. To make the wonton soup, first you boil a pot of water and then add the wontons in. Just depends on how many you want, how many you’re going to serve for each person and now I’m going to put 46 I have here made from the one pack of wonton pastry. Just bring the water to boil. Once the water boiled, add some one cup of cold water in and cover it and bring that back to boil again. In the meantime, put your kettle on boil, of water. Once this boils again, that’s it. That’s done so you can just pour them out into the bowl you prepared before, there’s six or seven here. 10 of them and then add the boiling water into the bowl. Stir them well. That’s my lovely wonton soup, enjoy.
