Read on to get my pork wonton recipe.
Some call wonton potstickers; others, dumplings. To me and my hubby, wonton falls under the dimsum category together with the siomai, hakao and the like. I decided to make pork wonton at home the moment I found wonton wraps (skin) at the supermarket. I've always been curious about them. Since I know how to make pork spring rolls (lumpiang shanghai in Tagalog), I figured it won't be too complicated to make pork wontons.
And I was right! So, here's what you need in making pork wonton at home.
Ingredients in making pork wonton:
- garlic, crushed and chopped
- onions, chopped
- parsley, chopped
- carrots, diced
- Chinese celery, chopped
- spring onions, chopped
- ground pork, preferably lean cut
- egg whites
- fish sauce
- salt and pepper, to taste
- wonton skin
Steps in making pork wonton:
1. Mix the following in a deep bowl:
- spring onions
- flour (Not too much. Just enough to build consistency with the egg whites)
- egg whites
There! You're wonton is ready for frying, steaming or putting in wonton soup. If you're frying these, make sure to deep-fry the pork wontons under med-high temperature. If the stove is too high, it may burn the skin while the meat it not yet done. Medium-high should be good. You can also opt to stir-fry the meat filling first before wrapping them on wonton skin.
That's it! Remember me when you cook!
