Instead of the usual wanton filling, i felt like something different. I wanted to make a chinese-thai fusion of the usual wonton by using what I have in my pantry. To do that, I added chopped up rehydrated cellophane noodled or glass noodles into my mashed up tofu (non-vegetarians use pork or whatever mince meat you fancy). I also added loads of spring onions and some garlic and ginger. To round up the flavors, I added some soy sauce (about 3 tablespoons), sesame oil (1 teaspoon), 2 thinly sliced kafir lime leaves, some dark brown sugar (1teaspoon) and some black pepper. I also grated 1 small carrot and 4 huge chinese cabbage leaves for crunch and color. To make sure that they mend together well, i added 1 tablespoon full of corn flour.
I cooked it using the gyoza way, which is pan frying it until the bottoms are slightly browned and then i add some water to it, it worked out pretty well. Really well, actually. The kafir lime leaves gave it that thai flavor I craved. I think it’d work better with meat 😉 I made some broth to go with it, to make it a really warm meal. The broth is just a simple vegetable broth, from powdered buillion.
I’m going to have to leave you guys to your imagination how it looks like when it’s cooked because in the midst of starvation, I forgot to take pictures …I only remembered after I stared at my empty bowl 😛
