Gather the Ingredients for Homemade Wontons.

Here is what you need: 

  1. Wonton Wrappers. I purchase mine from an Asian or International Food Market. The wonton wrappers are 3-inch X 3-inch square. They are made with flour, eggs, and water.
  2. Meat -ground Pork or make it vegetarian with a plant-based sausage.
  3. Vegetables – carrots, celery, scallions, garlic.
  4. Seasonings: ginger, soy sauce, salt, and pepper to taste.
  5. Other- sesame oil, cornstarch.

Let’s Make some Homemade Wontons.

SIS simple is smart steps to making these yummy wontons:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Place 1 1/2 tsp of the filling on the wrapper.
  3. Dip your index finger in water and “paint” water around the outer edge of the wrapper.
  4. Fold the wrapper over to form a pocket with the filling sealed inside.
  5. Finish folding the wonton as shown in the video.

Homemade Wonton Dipping Sauce:

The dipping sauce is super quick and easy to make. Whisk together:

1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce with 1 tsp. Rice vinegar and 1 tsp sesame oil. Add 1 tbsp. Sugar and 1 tbsp. Chopped scallions. Finish with a few drops of your favorite hot sauce, and a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds.

Fry the Wontons or use them in Wonton Soup.

Deep fry the wontons in a deep fryer or a deep frying pan with at least 3 inches of oil in it. Use a thermometer to monitor the oil temperature. Keep the oil a steady 375-degrees F. If the oil is too cold, the wontons soak up oil and are greasy and heavy. If the oil is too hot, they burn.

Serve hot with a dipping sauce or a Sweet Chili Sauce.

Make it vegetarian and use beyond sausage in place of the ground pork.
A deep fryer with a thermostat is best. If you use a frying pan you will want 3-4 inches of oil in the pan. Use a thermometer to monitor the temp. If the oil is to cold the wontons will soak up extra oil making them greasy. To hot and they will burn.
