Wonton Soup

Sunday rainy day is the perfect weather for a nice Wonton soup. Wonton soup is typically eaten for breakfast in China, pairing with steamed dumplings and Youtiao (fried dough). It’s simple and light, also good dish for whoever is under the weather.DSC03000.JPG

DIRECTION

  • Mince the shrimp and mix all ingredients for the wonton. Set aside.DSC02956.JPGDSC02962.JPGDSC02965.JPGDSC02969.JPG
  • Cook chicken broth with ginger, garlic, dried shrimp, and spring onion in a pot for about 20-30 minutes, and let it shimmer, while making the wonton.DSC02974.JPG
  • Put about 1-1.5 tsp of the filling, moist all the corner of the wonton wrap and stick all the corner together. Make sure not to have too much filling, otherwise it’s difficult to stick the wonton skin. Don’t worry if you don’t wrap it well, it will all be cooked later and the shape of the wonton won’t be too obvious.DSC02973.JPGDSC02976.JPGDSC02978.JPGDSC02981.JPG
  • Once all the wonton is ready, take out the ginger, spring onion, dried shrimp, and garlic from the chicken broth. Add in soy sauce and fish sauce.DSC02986.JPGDSC02988.JPG
  • Cook pakchoi for a few minutes, take it out.DSC02989.JPG
  • Cook the wonton for about 3-5 minutes until the skin is soft.DSC02990.JPG
  • Ready to serve with delicious soup and coriander.DSC02993.JPGDSC03002.JPG

Hello there! If you are stopping by this page, you are probably searching for easy Asian home-cook meal inspirations that are uncomplicated, quick, budget-friendly, and still tasty and delishhh….. That’s what I am going to share in this blog. I am not a chef, I cook because I love it and I enjoy it. To give you a little background of who I am…. My name is Dewi, a self-made home-cook who enjoys filling her kitchen in with tasty and delicious of Asian food. I was born and grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia where I have never learned how to cook (except frying an egg or two, add soy sauce, and eat it with rice) and never thought I would have to cook ever in my life. Because my mom, who was (still is) the “family chef” had never encouraged the children to be involved in the kitchen. So, my passion for food and cooking came later on when I went abroad. In 2006, I moved to Beijing, China where I lived for a good 9 years. I occasionally cooked as I preferred to eat out or to order in, for a simple reason, it’s convenient and affordable (back then). My cooking journey became more apparent in 2015 when I decided to move to Germany. Eating out, especially for Asian food is expensive and not authentic. The selection of Asian restaurants is limited and because of the high price, it would mean that I would have to burn a hole in my pocket if I want to do it often. So now that I have a small family (my husband, my son, and I), I cook not only for myself but also for them. I like to try new things like occasional baking or non-Asian food. For that being said, I want to share my cooking journey with you and hope that you can find new food inspirations that you can do yourself at home, either for yourself or your family, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Happy cooking! =) Xoxo Dewi
