  • 2 tbs Vegetable oil
  • 8 oz Lean pork minced (ground)
  • 8 oz Peeled shrimps finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs Soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs Rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Bamboo shoots finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs Chinese dried mushrooms soaked in cold water for 20 minutes, drained and chopped
  • 2 Spring onions scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Cornflour cornstarch, blended with 1 Tbs water
  • 8 oz Wonton dough thinly rolled and cut into 36 squares, or 36 bought wonton wrappers
  • Sufficient vegetable oil for deep-frying


  • Heat the oil in a frying-pan. Add the pork and fry until it loses its pinkness. Stir in the shrimps, soy sauce, wine or sherry, salt, bamboo shoots and vegetables and fry for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the cornflour (cornstarch) mixture until the pan mixture thickens. Remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Lay the wrappers on a flat surface and put a little filling just below the centre. Wet the edges of the dough, then fold over one corner to make a triangle, pinching the edges together to seal. Pull the corners at the base of the triangle together and pinch to seal.
  • Fill a large saucepan one-third full with oil and heat until it reaches 190oC (375°F) on a deep-fat thermometer, or until a small cube of stale bread dropped into the oil turns golden in 40 seconds. Carefully lower the wontons into the oil, a few at a time, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen towels.
  • Transfer the wontons to a warmed serving dish and serve piping hot.
