  • Yield : 50 wontons
  • Prep Time : 25m
  • Cook Time : 10m
  • Ready In : 35m

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground meat (chicken, turkey, beef, lamb)
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 cups finely chopped kale (leaf only) or vegetables of your choice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 50 wonton wrappers, defrosted
  • cooking oil for frying

Method

Step 1

In a large bowl, add the meat, ginger, garlic, green onions, soy sauce, oyster sauce, curry powder and kale and mix well to combine. To make the egg wash, in a small bowl, add the water and egg and whisk with a fork.

Step 2

To assemble the wontons, place a wonton wrapper flat in the palm of your hand. If frying, add 1 teaspoon of mixture to the center of the wrapper. If boiling, add 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Dip a finger in the egg wash, and paint all 4 edges with the wash. Fold the wonton in half, corner to opposite corner to make a triangle. Seal tightly all around. Make sure there are no air pockets or holes in the wonton. Fold the longer two triangle points together and seal to make the wonton shape

Step 3

Place folded wonton on a clean, dry plate or baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap to avoid drying out. When wontons are all folded, you can store or freeze.

Step 4

To fry wontons, add 1 to 1 1/2 inches of cooking oil to a wok or pot. Heat the oil until it reaches 375F. Add a few wontons to the oil to fry, turning occasionally until they are golden brown. Remove them to a draining rack placed over a baking sheet so they can drain excess oil.
