This is another popular Chinese snack after spring roll... These bite sized crispy wontons can be made with veg or non veg filling and served with the spicy home made dipping sauce to go with them.

2. Heat a tablespoon of oil and add the ginger garlic paste and saute.

3. Add the finely chopped vegetables and stir fry. Add salt, ajinomoto, soy sauce and stir fry till the water is dry. Keep the flame high as the vegetables have to remain crunchy ...do not over cook.Let the mixture cool.

4. Now add 1/4 cup water to the white flour and mix well. Cook it on low flame stirring continuously to make a paste to seal the wontons.( white sauce consistency)

5. Take a wonton wrapper, put a little mixture in the centre and apply paste to the edges. Close it like a triangle.

6. Now take the 2 edges and secure them overlapping each other and stick with the paste.

Deep fry and serve immediately with wonton sauce.
