- Category: Wonton
- Cuisine: Chinese
- 1 egg
- 2 cups (250g) all-purpose (plain) flour
- ½ cup (120ml) water (you might not need all of it)
- Beat the egg with a pinch of salt, then add ¼ cup (60ml) of water. Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle.
- Add the egg mixture as much of the remaining water as you need to make a dough. If your dough is still dry, add extra water.
- Shape the dough into a ball. Knead it for 5 minutes or until it is smooth. Cover it and chill it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then turn it on to a lightly floured board and roll it out very thin.
- Cut it into 3 and a half inch (9cm) squares and keep them in the refrigerator or freezer in a plastic bag until you are ready to make a wonton recipe with them.
They will keep for up to 10 days in the refrigerator or a month in the freezer, so you have plenty of time to use them. You have to thaw frozen ones before taking the stack apart else they will break.
Choose your favorite wonton fillers to go in the middle of these such as pork and shrimp, crabmeat and cream cheese, or barbecued duck and green onion.
