Wanton making

My first time again wrapping Wanton. Last weekend bought back the material and yesterday night, I make it as our dinner. The ingredient is simple, but lots chopping work. I used pork, fish (readily fish paste) and prawn.

The stuffing main portion is pork. It is optional for mixing in with fish paste and prawn, but of cause include those in the stuffing make tastier. The portion scale for pork, fish paste and prawn is 2: 1: 0.5.

Minced pork first, then add in fish paste, followed by add in minced prawn. All minced well and mix up till the texture become fine and smooth. At the same time add in water, salt, soya sauce, pepper and mushroom powder.

The wrapping process is fun. I was a bit kelam-kabut on the first few when closing up the wanton skin. As I'm continue wrapping it, it gets better and in shape. I make quite a big wanton and left a bit on closing. The size is 2-3 times of those we eating outside. *chuckle*

Cooking the wanton - boil it till cooked with plain hot water first. When eat, serve with anchovies soup.
This is our dinner yesterday night, wanton accompany with wanton mee.
*Burppp* I took 7 wanton plus the noodle already very full. I made 30 wanton and have lots of left over, enough for my breakfast and lunch today.

I love to make dumpling and wanton too. Yours one is very nice, because it contained alot of meat flavours. For mine, I just use prawn meat (coz I cant find pork here).
