This is my 400th recipe on my blog and i feel a real sense of achievement. I am so grateful to all my followers, and those who have helped me come so far. I would never be where i am today if all of you did not follow me. To celebrate this achievement i am posting a much asked for recipe from all of you. Crispy chinese chicken wontons!
I will also give you the vegetarian version for the filling. I made this with ready made wonton wrappers.
250 grams of minced chicken, i used chicken breast
1 teaspoon of minced ginger and garlic paste
1 teaspoon of dark soya sauce
a pinch of white pepper
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of chinese rice wine (optional) My halaal followers please use a little vinegar instead
1/4 cup of shredded cabbage
2 tablespoons of spring onions
Wonton wrappers as needed (bought from the asian supermarkets)
Oil for deep frying
I minced my chicken at home in my amazing bullet. I had my butcher cut the breast for me into small pieces and i put them bit by bit into my bullet and minced them. This way you have a fat free mince and its not too watery. If you buy ready made minced chicken please see that its not watery.
Marinate the mince in all the above ingredients and keep it for a few hours.
Take the wonton wrappers and put a small amount of minced chicken in it and bring up the edges. Use a mixture of white flour and water paste to seal it. Keep it them in a greased plate (grease the plate with oil) and cover, Make up all the wontons in the same way and then deep fry them in medium oil till golden brown. If you fry them in very hot oil they will brown quickly and the chicken will not mince.
FOR THE CHILLI DIP:
Soya sauce, a little sugar, a little vinegar, some minced ginger, some chopped green chillies and sesame oil
Mix this all together and leave it for about half an hour
Serve with the wontons
FOR THE VEGETARIAN FILLING:
minced tofu, little soya sauce, sesame oil, chilli sauce, white pepper, spring onions, chopped cabbage…
Mix all together and fill the wontons
