I never thought about making wontons at home. It sounds like you need millions of ingredients that you don’t have. But if you start cooking more Chinese and Vietnamese food you wanna stock up on some good soy sauce, chili oil, fish sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar anyway. You will only need little amounts, so you won’t run out of those sauces and spices any time soon. Once you have your basic stock the whole wide world of asian cooking opens up to you.
_ mix all ingredients well [everything but the wrappers and one egg white]
_ lay out wonton wrappers
_ paint two edges with egg white
_ place one teaspoon filling on the wrapper
_ fold to make a triangle
_ dab egg white on left corner
_ push the middle inward
_ for wonton soupe boil wonton soup broth [plain old chicken broth is fine too]
_ put in wontons
_ cook for 5 minutes [should get a wrinkly look]
_ there you go!
It takes quite a while to prepare, but is very nice to make in advance – put it into the freezer and take it to work the next day. Boil water and in just 6min your lunch is done!
