Directions

  1. Use any standard method of folding the wontons using about 1 teaspoon each.
  2. Most Chinese cookbooks have illustrations.
  3. Deep fry a few at a time until golden brown.
  4. Drain and blot.
  5. Note: when deep frying make sure the oil isn't too hot.
  6. If too hot the food will cook too quickly on the outside but the filling will remain undercooked.
  7. Always put one piece in the oil as a test.
  8. Check how long it takes to start browning.
  9. Adjust oil temperature accordingly.

Very easy recipe to do. Did not use water chestnuts. Instructions are very sketchy for a beginner cook. I folded mine into a triangle and used the beaten egg to seal the edges.
