Homemade Deep Fried Wonton
The Homemade Deep Fried Wonton recipe offers a delightful combination of tender wrappers filled with a flavorful mixture of ground pork, minced shrimp, and aromatic ingredients like ginger, bamboo shoots, onion, and garlic. The addition of soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, and optional sugar enhances the taste profile, creating a harmonious blend of savory and umami flavors. Green onions and cornstarch are also incorporated to add texture and binding to the filling.
To prepare the wontons, the ingredients are mixed together in a bowl, creating a well-seasoned and cohesive filling. Each wonton wrapper is then carefully filled with a teaspoon of the meat mixture, and the edges are sealed with a touch of water. The wonton is folded into a triangle shape, repeating the process for the remaining wrappers. This step ensures that each wonton is properly sealed and ready for frying.
The next step involves heating vegetable or canola oil in a wok over medium heat until hot. Carefully, a few pieces of wonton are dropped into the hot oil and deep-fried until they achieve a golden brown hue. It’s important to ensure that the oil is not too hot to prevent burning the outer skin while ensuring the meat inside cooks thoroughly. Once fried to perfection, the wontons are removed from the oil and drained, resulting in crispy, golden parcels of deliciousness.
The Homemade Deep Fried Wontons are best served warm, accompanied by a side of Thai sweet and chili sauce. This dipping sauce complements the savory and crispy wontons, adding a touch of sweetness and heat to elevate the overall flavor profile. This recipe showcases how simple, everyday ingredients can come together to create a satisfying and appetizing dish that is sure to be enjoyed by all.
