Crispy Fried Wonton

I never had the need to learn to make fried wonton when I lived in Jakarta. There’s this one place that sells amazingly crispy and yummie fried wonton – although it’s the chicken noodle that’s to-die-for.  You know where it is  ;-)   Since I live in the mainland, I rarely find any fried wonton, you know, the crispy ones. If there’s one, it would be soaking wet in oil with the flavours I barely recognize. 

I come to one conclusion, the best chinese food is not in the mainland China. It’s in South East Asia. Singapore-Indonesia or Malaysia.  Anyway, this is my first trial to make fried wonton. So simple and makes a great afternoon or evening snacks.

There’re several different versions of the recipe, but I like this one better. I know how it should taste like, at least.

I like how your wontons are more meat than skin, like you find at most restaurants. They look gorgeous!
