Yum yum, one of the popular dish in our family, fried wantons. We frequently have wantons on the dinner table, sometimes it’s fried and other times it’s served as soup.

The method for making both is similar except for soup wise, you don’t fry the wantons but drop them into soup that is boiling. Add some vegetables and cook for 2 minutes on high heat, and it’s ready! You can even add noodles to it and turn it into wanton noodle soup.
