Chicken & coriander wontons

Method

  • Scrape and clean the coriander roots. Finely chop with the garlic and then mash with a little salt to form a paste.
  • Chop the chicken until almost minced.
  • Then combine the chicken with the spring onions, garlic mixture, sliced coriander leaves and kecap manis.
  • Brush a wonton wrapper with water and place about 1 tspn of the mixture in the centre. Then fold in half to form a triangle, turn over and brush the edges with a little more water. Bring the two points up to the top of the wrapper and pinch lightly to form a wonton shape. Continue the process.
  • Preheat the oil in a deep fryer (or a large heavy-bottomed pot) and fry the wontons, in batches, for about 1-2 mins until crisp and golden all over. Drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • Serve the wontons with your favourite dipping sauce on the side.
