“Scrumptious wonton soup, good for an enjoyable meal, perfect for warming the heart of your loved ones! Check out my recipe and tips to make and cook good wonton soup!”
Wonton is a word transcribed from Cantonese. In mandarin, we called it 馄饨 (pronounced as “hoon toon”). It simple means irregularly shaped dumpling. The other more simplified name is 云吞 (pronounced as “yun toon”), which direct translated as cloud swallow. Either way, they all mean tiny dumplings!
I like to make wonton as it is simple and much likeable by my little one as it looks like cute tiny balls in the bowl.
The wonton skins or wrappers can be made at home from fresh dough. However, you might find it tedious to roll each wrapper to very thin sheet. Moreover, it is so convenient to buy the wrapper off-the-shelf, nowadays. They are typically sold in a vacuum-packed of square-shaped pre-made wrappers, with cornstarch dusted between these 7cmx7cm cubicle sheets to keep them from sticking together.
