The best restaurant in Parramatta identify the different ways to fold Wontons
Wontons are a type of dumpling that are usually filled with minced pork or diced shrimp. The best restaurant in Parramatta love their wontons seasoned with minced onions, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil. Usually served with soup or even deep fried, they have many different variations in shape and can be folded a number of ways.
When wrapping wontons, our Chinese restaurant in Parramatta want to express the importance of covering wrappers and minding the size of the filling. It is recommended to always cover both unused wrappers and completed wontons under damp tea towels. It is also crucial that you don’t try to rap oversized wontons. The wrappers aren’t usually very stretchable and once they tear you can’t put them back together. The general rule is to use one teaspoon of filling per 3-inch sheet.
There are many different folding styles when wrapping wontons, with our Parramatta Chinese restaurant identifying the following as the most recognised shapes;
- Wonton Ravioli
- Samosa Style
- Samosa with a twist style
- Envelope style
- Taiwan Style
- China Style
- Cantonese/Hong Kong Style
- Folding Arm Style
- Four-Pointed Star Style
An important tip when wrapping wontons is to ensure that you push out the air between the filling and the wrappers. If the air gets stuck, the air will expand whilst being cooked and the wontons may burst.
