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!
