A wonton is a type of dumpling commonly found in a number of Chinese Cuisine. Wontons are made by spreading a square wrapper, dough made of flour, egg water, and salt, placing a small amount of filling in the center, and sealing the wonton into the desired shape by compressing the wrapper’s edges together with the fingers. Adhesion may be made by moistening the wrapper’s inner edges, typically by dipping a fingertip into water and running it across the dry dough to dissolve the extra flour. As part of the sealing process, air is pressed out of the interior to avoid rupturing the wonton from internal pressure when cooked.

ir pockets or holes in the wonton. Fold the longer two triangle points together and seal to make the wonton shape.
Place folded wonton on a clean, dry plate or baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap to avoid drying out. When wontons are all folded, you can store or freeze.
To fry wontons, Heat the oil. Add a few wontons to the oil to fry on medium heat, turning occasionally until they are golden brown. Remove them to a draining rack placed over a baking sheet so they can drain excess oil.
