Money Bag Wontons – 炸黄金福袋

Tiny golden bags stuffed with juicy minced pork meat and prawns, then deep fried for that maximum chip crisp exterior. Resembling the money bags carried by the Chinese in the past, these fried wontons are a symbolism of wealth and prosperity. With pre made wonton wrappers readily available in supermarkets, who knows you might just be on your way to striking it rich.

As tempting as it can be, be generous but not overly generous with the fillings. You don’t want your wontons to brown even before your fillings have cooked. Add a simple pop of colour along with a delicate hint of onion flavour to every bite. A simple strand of chive leaf will do the trick. Seal the edges of the wrapper with water and fasten the strand of chive leaf firmly at the top of the wonton to secure all that delicious “loots” in your golden bag.

Welcome your Lunar New Year with an abundance of wealth as you munch on to mouthfuls of savoury crisp money bags. This tasty fresh snack is so fun to make and easy to assemble – once you’ve made your own, you’ll never look back to store bought wontons again!
