1/1 Photo of Sweet Wonton Pillows
For the lunar new year a colleague brought me some wonton that her Mother-in-law had made. At first bite I knew I wanted the recipe. She only knew the Chinese name of the wontons so I was not able to find the recipe on line. I was so happy I found this recipe which comes very close. Don't be afraid of the mint leaf; it gives it a bit of contrast. From Martin Yan.
