Wontons are one of the most popular snacks in Chinese cuisine. There are many different ways to prepare wonton including deep fried wontons, wonton soup and Sichuan red oil wontons which are my personal favourite.

 

Not only are there many ways to cook wontons, there are also many ways in which you can make wonton wrappers as well. This article is going to introduce some different ways to make wonton wrappers.

 

You will need to use a pasta machine for recipe 2 for flattening the wonton wrappers. Pasta machines are great tools when you want to make dumplings and wonton wrappers. You can also use a pasta machine to make noodles and even some Chinese pastry wrappers.

 

The procedures for Recipes 2 and 3 are the same but the ingredients are a little bit different. Recipe 1 can make around 24 wonton wrappers while recipes 2 and 3 will make around 20 wonton wrappers.

How to Make It

Recipe 1: 

Procedures:

 

  1. Lightly beat the egg with the salt. Add ¼ cup water.
  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the egg and water mixture.
  3. Mix in with the flour. Add as much of the remaining water as necessary to form a dough. (Add more water than the recipe calls for if the dough is too dry).
  4. Form the dough into a ball and knead for about 5 minutes, or until it forms a smooth, workable dough.
  1. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll it out until very thin, and cut into 3.5 inch squares. Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to use. 

Recipe 2:

Procedures:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together and knead it into a smooth and workable dough.
  2. Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes and turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough until the dough can be fed through the pasta machine.
  3. Flatten the dough with the pasta machine and use the thinnest setting (I usually use 8 or 9 setting on my pasta machine).
  4. Cut the flattened dough into 8cm x 8cm squares and sprinkle some flour on both sides of the wonton wrappers to prevent the wrappers sticking to each other.
  5. Put the wonton wrappers into a plastic bag or airtight container as soon as possible to stop them drying out. Store them in a refrigerator or freezer until ready to use
