We don't have an Asian market and none, Walmart, included of our grocery stores has wonton wrappers, I can get rice paper (spring roll wrappers) like crazy. Since we don't have a source for wonton wrappers I have been using this simple recipe for making them.
1/3 cup water
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
- In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Mix in the water.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Create a well in the center of the mixture and slowly pour in the egg and water. Mix well. If the mixture is too dry, increase the amount of water one teaspoon at a time until a pliable dough has formed.
- On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until elastic. Cut dough into two separate balls. Cover the balls with a damp cloth for a minimum of 10 minutes.
- Cut each ball into four equal pieces. Roll the pieces into 10 1/2 by 10 1/2 inch squares. Cut each into nine 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch squares.
These can be fried or boiled to finish. I will be making Mi hoanh thanh (Vietnamese Wonton soup) tonight and will post up the wonton making in a thread for that soup.
