Crispy Fried Wanton Recipe

Wantons are a Chinese delight. Steamed, fried or used in a soup, they can be enjoyed without any accompaniment, though a Schezwan sauce or a hot and sweet ketchup add zing to it. Here is a mixed vegetable Wanton which is super crisp and delicious.

For the outer covering:

Ingredients

  • 250 gms Maida/ All purpose flour
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • Salt

Method :

Mix the salt and oil with the maida. Crumble it. Add enough water to bind a semi soft dough. Knead well and rest it for about 15 mnts.

For the stuffing:

  • 1 medium sized carrot
  • Cabbage
  • Purple cabbage
  • French Beans
  • Spring onion greens
  • Spring onions
  • Boiled Sweet Corn
  • The remaining vegetables to be chopped are in the same proportion as the quantity of the chopped carrot.
  • Salt
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • 10 flakes garlic
  • 2 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 tbsp Amul butter
  • Oil for frying the Wantons

Method:

Chop all the vegetables fine and keep them aside. Mince the garlic and grate the ginger. Heat the butter in a pan. Drop in the ginger and garlic and roast till they give out an aroma. Drop in the chopped vegetables and salt. Sauté on a high flame for a couple of minutes. Add the soya sauce and pepper powder. Mix well and keep aside.

Preparing the Wantons:

Knead the dough for a couple of minutes and divide it into 12 portions. Take a portion and make a ball. Roll it out into a circle of six inch diameter. Cut it into a four inch square piece. Place the filling in the centre and fold it into a triangle. Seal the edges and bring the two ends of the triangle together. Pinch them together. Finish off similarly with the rest of the dough. Heat the oil. Gently slide in a wanton and deep fry till crisp and golden brown. Serve hot with sauce of your choice.
