How To Make chinese banana wontons

  • 1
    Mix together the banana,nuts,spices and dash of salt. Place wonton wrappers out to make an assembly line. Get a pastry brush with a small dish of water ready. You may also sprinkle some cornstarch on a plate so the prepared wontons won’t stick before they are fried.
  • 2
    Place one tablespoon of the banana mixture on the center of each wonton. Don’t be tempted to overfill,you will just create a frustrating mess.Use your pastry brush to place water on the sides of the wrappers. Fold them over into triangles and pinch to secure them.

    Place them onto the cornstarched plate until ready to fry. If not frying right away, cover with plastic wrap so wontons don’t dry out. Pour about a 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet and heat until the oil is shimmering over a medium high flame.

    Place the wontons in the pan in batches. Turning when golden(about 1 1/2 minutes on each side). When done, place them on a cooling rack so excess oil can drip off. You can dust with powdered sugar just before serving. A favorite dipping sauce is warmed nutella.
