Category: Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Sweet potatoes
  • 6 tb Minced fresh ginger
  • 1 c Chopped cilantro
  • 6 Serrano chiles, seeded,
  • -minced
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 32 Round won- ton wrappers
  • 1 c Canola oil


Bake potatoes in a 375 degrees oven for 1 hour, or until very soft. Cut in
half and scrape flesh into a bowl. (You should have about 2 cups.) Add
ginger, cilantro, chiles and salt; mix well. Place 1 tablespoon filling in
a won-ton wrapper. Brush a little water around rim of wrapper, fold in half
(forming a half- moon); press edges of won ton together to seal. Set aside
on waxed paper and cover with a damp towel. Repeat until all the won tons
are filled.

Pour oil into a wok; place over medium-high heat until oil sizzles when a
drop of water hits it. Reduce heat to medium and, using tongs, slip a few
won tons at a time into the oil. Fry for 1 minute, or until won tons are
golden and slightly puffed. Turn and fry 30 or 40 seconds. Remove to paper
towels to drain. Repeat with remaining won tons. Serve hot.

Serves 8 as an appetizer.
