Wanton - In Chili Oil & Deep Fried

Another recipe using minced pork and prawn paste. I previously made using a recipe just using minced chicken HERE and another one using a combination of minced chicken and prawns HERE

What you need:

enough wanton skin

For the filling:

350g minced pork
150g ready to use seasoned prawn paste
chopped of 1 big carrot
1stalk of spring onion, chopped
2tbsp chopped garlic
1tsp salt
1tbsp light soy sauce
1tbsp sesame oil
a pinch of pepper

  • In a big bowl, mix together all filling ingredients until fully incorporated
  • Make wantons by put 1tsp of filling at the center of a wanton skin and fold according to your preference
  • Deep fry until golden brown or boil in a pot of chicken stock until cooked and drizzle chili oil just before serving

I made the same chili oil mix as the one I did before, recipe is HERE

Here I used seasoned ready to use prawn paste, if you use minced fresh prawns, which is not seasoned yet, please adjust the seasoning used accordingly. I suggest up the salt to 1tbsp and light soy sauce to 2tbsp, can also add a pinch of chicken stock powder

Corn Dog

My kids LOVE corn dog, particularly those with mozzarella cheese filling, so I omitted the sausage
My first try making them at home
I found it's not that easy to hold the shape, cos the batter will keep flowing down. So from dipping to coating to frying, everything must be done fast, especially the coating part
Pardon the not perfect shape (this is so me LOL) 
But the texture is very good, a little bland in taste need some seasonings added IMO
Well, tomato ketchup, mustard and/or chili sauce really help
Oh and dun follow me using satay sticks, that definitely is not strong enough. Next time I will use wooden chopstick LOL

What you need:

some mozzarella sticks
some thick bamboo sticks (or wooden chopsticks)

240g plain flour
1/4tsp salt (next time I will add to 1/2tsp)
45g sugar
1 egg
240ml fresh milk
some breadcrumbs
enough cooking oil for deep frying

chili sauce

  1. Pierce mozzarella cheese with the sticks, set aside
  2. Pour breadcrumbs on a plate
  3. Prepare batter by mixing flour, salt, sugar, egg and milk. Stir until well mixed
  4. Pour the batter into a tall glass
  5. Heat oil in a pan wide enough to fit the sticks
  6. Dip mozzarella cheese sticks into the glass filled with batter and immediately transfer to the plate with breadcrumbs
  7. Roll it so it's coated with breadcrumbs thoroughly. Press gently to firm up the shape
  8. Immediately put in the hot oil (make sure it is hot, otherwise the cheese will ooze out and oil will start to splatter)
  9. Deep fry over medium fire for about 3mins make sure you roll around so all sides will be evenly browned
  10. Serve with ketchup and mustard, chili sauce too
