How to make why i luv leftovers
These are another leftover wonders I love to make, when I make wonton & noodle soup. I am guilty of sometimes makin a few more than i need to, just so I can have heaps of left overs. More the merrier i say. They're great as appetisers or when u have friends over.
Mix all the filling ingredients. then let it set in the fridge for 5 minutes.
take a sheet of wonton wrapper and put a small amount of the filling in the middle.
Have a small bowl of water set aside and dip your finger into the water and then run your finger along two sides of the wrapper.
Fold over and seal sides together and you should have a triangle shape with the point facing you. Then again wet your finger and dab one corner of the wonton and bring two sides together and then flip it up. You should have a little boat.
Heat a wok with vegetable oil, wait till the surface is shimmering and drop in the wontons in batches.
Fry until golden brown and transfer to paper towels to absorb excess oil
Serve on plate or platter with your choice of dipping sauce. I use sweet chilli.
