When you serve these amazing Fried Pork Wontons to your guests, they’ll complain that you didn’t serve more. A super addictive starter!
- ½ pounds, ⅞ ounces, weight Minced Pork
- 1 tbsp Oyster sauce
- 1 Spring onion, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon Grounded ginger
- 1 teaspoon Five Chinese Spices
- 5-⅓ ounces, weight Water chestnuts, chopped
- 2 teaspoons Soya sauce
- 30 Wonton wrappers
- 1 Egg white
- Lots of light oil (I used rice bran oil) for frying
In a bowl, combine the pork, oyster sauce, spring onions, ground ginger, Chinese five-spice, water chestnuts and soy sauce.
Lay out all the wonton wrappers on a flat, clean surface, then place about 1 teaspoon of pork stuffing in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Brush a little egg white around the edge of each wonton wrapper, then glue one corner of the wonton wrapper to the opposite corner to form a nice triangle. Next, brush some egg white on one side of this triangle, then pull both sides down and glue them together (if you’re confused, watch the demo video in the post). Do this with the rest of the wontons.
Put enough oil in a pan for frying, then preheat this oil over medium-high heat (make sure the pan cannot be easily knocked over). Take a tray and line it with paper towel while you wait for the oil to heat up.
Once you think the oil is hot enough, take a small piece of wonton wrapper and put it in the oil. If the small piece of wonton wrapper floats, the oil is hot enough to start frying the wontons. Carefully add the wontons to the oil (if you can’t put them all in at once, cook them in batches) and fry for about 3 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Transfer to paper towel to drain and serve.
