Ingredients
  • Ingredients:
  • Filling –
  • 250 g minced pork
  • 1 egg - beaten
  • 4 tbsp chicken stock / water
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 stalk spring onions – white part only (finely sliced)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp roasted sesame oil
  • Few dashes of white pepper
  • 2 ½ tsp cornstarch
  • 1 packet (approx. 40pcs) white wonton wrappers
  • Spicy Chilli Oil –
  • 3 tbsp laoganma spicy chilli crisp with oil
  • 1 small clove garlic – minced
  • 1 stalk spring onion – chopped finely
  • 1 sprig coriander – chopped finely
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1½ tbsp vinegar (I’m using dark vinegar)
  • ⅛ tsp prickly ash powder (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cover the wonton wrapper with a damp cloth to prevent from drying out.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the filling together. Use a chopstick and stick vigoriously in one direction until the pork resembles a sticky paste.
  3. Take a wonton wrapper and place on your palm. Scoop ½ tsp of mince pork filling and place in the centre of the wrapper. Fold into a triangle and bring the left and right ends together. Dap your finger with a little water to secure the ends. It should resemble an ingot.
  4. Repeat until all the wrappers are used up.
  5. At this point, you could store uncooked wontons in a freezer Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 1 month.
  6. To make spicy chilli oil, mix all the ingredients together in a medium bowl and give it a taste. Adjust the taste accordingly. Reserve some spring onions and coriander for garnish.
  7. Bring a pot of water to bowl and gently drop the desired quantity of wontons into the boiling water. Cook for 3 to 5 mins, until the wontons are floating. Do not overcrowd the pot.
  8. Remove wontons using a strainer and place into serving bowl. Spoon desired amount of spicy chilli oil over the wontons and serve warm.
