Making Wontons

  2. Mix well and add cornstarch to the mixture. Continue mixing.
  3. Cover mixture with saran wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
  4. Take a wonton wrapper and place it on your palm. Put a spoonful of mixture in the center of the wrapper. Use your other hand and gather up the four corners of the wrapper forming like a star.

Making Wonton Broth

  1. Use chicken broth or boil chicken with bones. You can also combine chicken and pork broth.

  2. Boil ½ to whole chicken with 6 cups of water. The more bones the tastier your soup will be.
  3. Bring it to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for an hour.
  4. Add onion, garlic and ginger, soy sauce, rice wine and sesame oil.
  5. When done, if you prefer a clear soup then strain the broth.
  6. Place back the strained broth in the pot. Again, bring it to boil over medium heat.
  7. Drop wonton and cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove and transfer the cooked wonton in a bowl if not eating right away or it will get soggy.
  8. If serving right away, 2 minutes before wonton is cooked, add brown mushroom. Cook for 2 minutes.
  9. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
  10. Garnish with chopped green onions and hard boiled egg before serving. Enjoy!
