Red Bean Paste Wontons


This is one I learned in highschool. VERY simple to make. I prefer to fold my wontons in the crown style, but there are numerous ways to fold them (link at bottom!) I also like cream cheese wontons, which are done in the exact same way just add cream cheese instead of bean paste, or put half and half in!

30-60 wonton skins
can or bag of sweetened bean paste




1.
Lay a wonton wrapper on a clean cutting board. Place a tablespoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper



2.
Wet the sides of the wrapper



3.
Fold the wrapper in half to form a triangle. Work out any air between wrapper and filling



4.
Wet the two side corners of the triangle, gently pull them together and press firmly.The center corner should stick out slightly. Cute right?

(see recipe pic above)

5.
Heat oil in a deep fryer or wok to 180C. Cook 4-6 wontons at a time in the oil until crisp and golden, then drain them on kitchen paper and keep them warm in a low oven while you prepare the remaining ones.
