 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Peanut oil
  • 1 1/2 tb Grated fresh ginger
  • 2 md Garlic cloves, pressed
  • 2 Tofu cakes, crumbled
  • 1/2 c Finely chopped scallions
  • 2 ts Dark sesame oil
  • 2 tb Tamari soy sauce
  • 50 Wonton wrappers
  • Bowl of lukewarm water
  • Cornstarch for dusting


Heat peanut oil in a wok. Sizzle the ginger & garlic briefly then add tofu
& stir-fry for a few minutes. Add scallions, sesame oil & tamari & stir
well. Set aside to cool.

Set up a work area with wonton wrappers, water & cornstarch. Place a
wrapper in front of you in a diamond position. Drop a heaping teaspoonful
of filling in the centre of the wrapper. Moisten all 4 edges with water &
pull the top corner down to the bottom, folding the wrapper over the
filling to make a triangle. Press edges firmly to make a seal. Bring left &
right corners together above the filling. Overlap the tips of these
corners, moisten with water & press together. Place completed wrapper on
the corn-starch platter & continue till all wrappers are used.

FOR SOUP: Drop wontons into boiling water & cook for 5 minutes. Drain.

TO FRY: Heat 2 to 3 cups of oil in a wok till hot. Deep fry wontons in
batches till golden, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Drain. Serve with dipping
sauce or duck sauce.

Uncooked wontons will keep in the freezer for a good 2 months if well
wrapped. Thaw before frying, but they can be boiled straight from frozen &
cooked 2 minutes longer.
