First Challenge - Wonton Soup!

Posted on January 8, 2020 at 11:35 AM

The reality hit home on New Year’s Day when I was asked ‘What is your first dish this week?’ Oh, hell. I really do now need to get my mind around the challenge. Do I start easy first or head in with a real challenge? It’s partly now coloured by the fact that still post-Christmas I am wanting simple and not too heavy. Perhaps a soup or light pasta dish? So decision was made. Wonton soup for Saturday lunch. The menu this time was from the RAF 100 cookbook, a great source of recipes from all over the world. The Bobotie is excellent, so it is a much-used book. Part of the challenge is to look at various recipes but almost all suggest pre-made wonton wrappers, but I want to go the whole hog, so they have to be made.

The recipe is quite straightforward on first view but if one wants to make everything from scratch (stock, wontons, etc.) then it is a time-consuming exercise. Therefore in preparation for serving tomorrow, the broth needs to be made. To begin with, I have had to make the chicken stock. I jointed the chicken and boned the legs and then roasted the carcass to put in the stock-pot. Once made, the stock is then used in the broth, which comprises pork, dried shrimp, spring onions and ginger. This is then left in the fridge overnight before making the dish.

The big day – challenge number one, Wonton Soup, will be done.

The first thing was to skim the broth, which after a night in the fridge (the broth – not me!) looked very clear. The wontons were the next job, as the dough needed making and resting. It’s a simple pasta-style dough in this recipe, but with only one egg for 250g of plain flour and some water (for pasta I use 300g of 00 flour and three eggs).

While the dough rested I made the filling – chopped pork, prawns, ginger, spring onions, sugar, salt, pepper and soy.

Once rested, the dough was rolled out using a pasta machine. Whilst the recipe suggested rolling as thin as possible, a 7 setting was too thin to handle so I opted for 6. The sheets were cut into 9cm squares and kept under cling film to avoid drying out.

The wontons were assembled by putting a dessert spoon of filling in the middle and then bringing the edges up and pinching them, giving a little twist to seal the edges.


The broth was finished with pak choi and spring onions, and the wontons put in boiling water for 6 minutes. The recipe called for egg noodles, too.


The wonton soup was a real success. The broth was light yet tasty and fragrant. The wonton were delicious, with a really flavoursome filling. However, here are a few pointers for next time:

1. The wontons were too thick where twisted, so it is either important to seal without twisting and perhaps steaming to reduce the chance of leakage

2. The dough was perhaps a bit too thick, so maybe I should persevere with thinner dough.

3. The recipe called for egg noodles – too much, unless you are only serving a couple of wontons

4. Maybe some other veg for garnish – thinly sliced carrot or baby corn perhaps.

I wanted to post you this bit of word to be able to thank you very much yet again on the pretty principles you've contributed on this website. It was wonderfully generous of people like you to provide openly what exactly most of us would have offered for sale as an e-book to help with making some money for their own end, particularly given that you could possibly have done it if you ever decided. Those basics as well acted to become good way to know that most people have similar zeal like mine to see significantly more with regards to this problem. I am certain there are lots of more fun occasions ahead for individuals that start reading your website.

I simply needed to say thanks all over again. I do not know the things I might have achieved without the entire strategies shared by you over my question. It previously was an absolute scary problem for me personally, but finding out this expert manner you dealt with that took me to cry with happiness. Extremely happier for your help and in addition trust you really know what a powerful job you happen to be providing training many people with the aid of a web site. I am sure you haven't got to know any of us.

I have to show my appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this problem. Right after checking throughout the internet and getting basics that were not beneficial, I figured my entire life was well over. Living without the presence of answers to the problems you have resolved through your good website is a crucial case, as well as ones which might have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web site. Your main talents and kindness in handling every part was very useful. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I can at this point look forward to my future. Thanks so much for the skilled and effective guide. I will not be reluctant to endorse your web page to anybody who needs care on this issue.
