directions

Step 1

Place a piece of wonton on a flat surface about 1 Tablespoon of filling onto the wrapper, being careful not to overfill.

Step 2

Dip your finger in a bowl of warm water and circle around the filling, and fold over to form a triangle shape.

Step 3

Using both thumbs and index fingers, press and squeeze both sides of the dumplings towards the centre to form the folds. Seal the dumpling by dipping your index finger into a small bowl of water and circle around the outer edges of the wonton wrapper.

Step 4

Place them on a floured surface or baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap or a damp cloth to prevent drying.

Step 5

Cook noodles, drain under cold water to stop cooking and set aside.

Step 6

In a medium pot, bring water to boil. Working in batches, gently lower dumplings into the water and let boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from water and cover to prevent drying.

Step 7

Bring chicken broth to a boil and season with white pepper and salt to taste.

Step 8

Place dumplings in soup bowls, add hot broth and garnish with chopped green onion.
