pork wontons

These wontons are super easy and fun to make.
We tend to do these on a Sunday night for tea.

We use 500g of pork mince and two packets of wontons.
 Add whatever flavourings you like to the mince- we used a slash of soy, a splash of fish sauce and some green ginger wine- you could use powdered or fresh ginger.
Simply put a teaspoon of mince on your wonton wrapper, brush the edges with water and fold- this is the fun part and we end up with all sorts of interesting shapes that the kids come up with.
You can find traditional folds on the net here
We cooked half in the deep fryer a few at a time and steamed or boiled half.
The two sauces were a Vietnamese dipping sauce and a plum sauce both found at the supermarket without any nasty additives in them.
I often make my own concoction up with various Asian ingredients in my pantry, soy sauce, oyster sauce, honey, ginger etc.

The consensus was that the fried ones tasted better with the thicker plum sauce and the steamed with the thinner dipping sauce.
These would be great as finger food for a party.
