I love blogging, but I have promised myself no blogging and blog hopping in the weekend so I don't check any blogs (well that has to be asmall lie thise weekend while i was looking o my mails i did take some sneak look to some blogs very fast, just for 5 minutes)
But then I look to my reader on monday afternoon and I see suddenly 228 post :-) I am not complaining, i do love going to all the blogs i love to read.
Well now let me go to the cooking side of the post.
I have had this pictures of this delicious soup for almost a year, and till now i didn't post them.
Don't know why, it just didn't seems to happen.
Actually I have some more in my draft, which i will have to post soon.
Wonton soup is something i make a lot at home.
When i make the wontons, i make a whole batch and keep them inthe freezer, so when i feel like having this delicious soup i just have to make soup and then sontons i take from my freezer.
My recipe is not at all authentic, i just make the way me an my family likes.
For the soup1 small piece of ginger grated
1 onion cut fine
1 onion cut fine
2 to 3 chillies or according to your taste.
One and a half litre Chicken broth ( i used readymade broth cubes)
1 tbsp soya sauce.
1 to 2 tbsp oil
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions for a few minutes.
Then add the chillies and ginger.
Fry for few seconds and the broth.
Cook for 10 minutes.Now add the wontons and boil for few minutes.Serve hot. You can garnish with spring onions or corriander leaves.
For the wontons.
1 packet of shop bought wonton wrappers. ( mostly there is 40 to 50 wrappers in a packet)
250 gm minced chicken ( use chicken legs, then the filling is moist, if you use breast it is a bit dry)
1 big piece of ginger
2 cloves garlic
3 to 4 chillies or according to your taste
2 tbsp of soya sauce or to your taste
4 tbsp finley chopped spring onions
2 tbsp corriander leaves optional
1 tbsp corn flour.
Grind them all together to a fine paste.
Place a tbsp of filling in the middled of each wrapper , brush the sides of the wrapper with water and just take all the ends and stick together, so you will have a bundle shape.
Do the same with the rest of the wrappers .
Heat water in a big pan with salt and a bit of oil and when the water is boilinh add the prepared wontons in batches and cook for few minutes, drian them and use them inthe soup.
When i make a huge batch i pour 1 to 2 tbsp of oil onto the cooked wontons so they don't stick to each other.
