A Great Dipping Sauce for Wontons

Many people are eager to start making the best and most easy wonton recipes but wait – what are you going to serve with the wontons? If you are serving them in soup then that is one thing but if not, you might like to serve a wonton dipping sauce on the side, to dip your steamed, baked or fried wontons into. You are going to need a tasty dipping sauce for wontons.

A wonton dipping sauce can be something out of a bottle such as soy sauce, oyster sauce or chili sauce, or it can be something you make yourself. Consider the wonton filling when thinking about what type of wonton dipping sauce to prepare.

Examples of a Good Dipping Sauce for Wontons

For example, a creamy filling like crab Rangoon would be best with a chili dipping sauce for wontons or something else which contrasts.

Folding Wontons

Sichuan wontons are known as ‘chao shou’ which means crossed hands, and they have a thickish, white wrapping. These wontons are boiled and served in a highly spicy sauce which is typical of nearly all Sichuan cuisine. The name is believed to refer to its wrapping style. The wonton wrapper is first folded into a triangular shape and then the two sides are brought to the front and they overlap. This looks a bit like someone with folded arms and it’s all in the folding wontons technique.

In Shanghai the wontons are folded into triangles but the second fold features a little twist, giving it a cute shape. Cantonese wontons are made by bringing the four corners of the wonton together and squeezing the wonton closed. The Cantonese ones first appeared as hawker street foods and this wrapping style was the fastest one which is why it was used to make longs of wontons in a short time. Continue reading

Chinese tea has a long history and the tea-drinking ritual has been around for over 1000 years. The Chinese were the first to discover the flavor of tea leaves, and tea is an integral part of daily life in China.

Chinese tea used to be divided into four grades, depending on quality, and the Chinese tea culture was developed a lot during the Ming and Song dynasties, popularizing it in neighboring countries such as Korea and Japan. People there soon took all the types of Chinese tea to their hearts.

Chinese tea can be divided into five categories – green, white, oolong, black and post-fermented. There are also compressed and scented teas. The most popular type of tea drunk in China is green tea. You can use Chinese tea to flavor desserts and to make other drinks, and you can drink it hot or iced. Continue reading
