I was recently asked by a friend who works for a local Malaysian newspaper to contribute to a piece she was writing on summer fruits. The article just got published. Here's the links for your reading pleasure!
Born from a thought while riding on the bus, I figured lets make some wantons. And since I had guests coming over over the weekend, what a great way to jazz up the wantons by adding feta cheese instead. So here's the recipe!
1/2 block of a 200g feta cheese - diced finely
1 chicken breast - halfed length ways then diced finely
a handful of coriander - finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
A dash of salt
A good dash of freshly ground black pepper
Firstly combine diced ingredients into a bowl and add the chopped coriander before combining it with the oils, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
Next, take wanton skin and using a teaspoon, take enough to fill the middle portion of the skin. Then apply some water on the edges and fold over before gathering them into the centre of the wanton.
The recipe would make around 14 to 15 pieces even up to 20 if you're making smaller portions of the wantons.
Heat up a sizeable pan high enough for you add a good portion of oil for deep frying. Make sure to heat the oil up til its hot before plonking the wantons in for deep frying.
When oil is ready, then add wantons with enough space for you to turn them over to ensure overall cooking.
Dish them out on a plate covered with paper napkins.
