For making chili oil sauce

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well incorporated. Set aside.

Wrapping the wontons

  • To wrap a wonton, place a wonton wrapper in one hand, scoop about 3/4 tbsp. of pork mixture in the middle of the wrapper.
  • Dip finger into the water and wet the edge of the wrap.
    Fold the wrap into a rectangular shape, like an envelope but leave a little bit space at the top. Press firmly along the edge to make sure the filling won’t come out.
  • Fold the top of the wrapper towards yourself, while folding the “envelope” down into a U shape. Put some water on the bottom right corner, fold and press the right and left corner firmly. The dough should stick together because of the water.

Cooking the wontons

  • In a pot boil water. Add some salt before throwing the wontons into it. The salt can help cook wontons faster. Drop the wontons one by one. Cook for about 5 minutes or when the wanton is wrinkly.
  • You can just cook the desired pieces of wonton and freeze the others for later consumption.
  • Transfer in a bowl and pour in the Sichuan chili sauce. Serve and Bon Appetit!
