Wonton Soup

Wontons! Little parcels of food! I saw Jaden's video on how to wrap wontons into little gold ingots and I told myself, I gotta try this.

Its a lot of fun really to wrap wontons, making little bits of marinated meat and wonton skin into these cute little wraps.

In addition to Jaden's recipe, I added some chopped water chestnuts and diced prawns into the mince meat. Oh and the process of peeling water chestnuts was a major pain in the backside. This I didn't enjoy at all.

The wontons were delicious and I like the extra crunch from the water chestnuts plus the savoury seafood flavour of the prawns.

Nom nom nom nom nom....

ahh!! these look good. fab idea to use water chestnuts for extra crunch. i just had the most unsatisfying takeout lunch and now that i see this i'm wondering why i wasn't smart enough to go for something tht actually tastes and looks good.

keropokman: yeah, after folding all those wontons, I have a new respect for those wonton noodles stalls!

diva: oh i know what you mean! its so frustrating to eat out. there are so many bad food out there, those people have no pride at all with their food!

amritac: good to hear that! try not to stuff too much mince meat. go bit by bit till you get the hang of it.

rita: wow, your wontons are awesome! nice!
