2) Place about 1 full teaspoon of filling in centre of the wrapper. Slightly paste the inside edges of wrapper with corn starch paste. Fold it in half, seal edges. Drag the lower right and left corners together and also seal them together with the paste. Repeat for the remaining wontons.

3) Boil 8 cups of water and carefully add in all wontons. Try gently stir the water while putting in wontons to avoid them sticking together. Cook wontons over medium heat for another 5-6 minutes.

4) Dish up wontons from water and put them in boiled hot soup.


When wontons float top during boiling, it means they are cooked. Suggest to cook for another ~1 minute to make sure the pork is well done.

The wrappers, also known as wonton skins, are usually bought from supermarkets or local stores than home-made.
