Fried Wonton Recipe
No, fried wontons are not the same as fried momos. Gosh, that’s like saying Rachael Ray is Rachel Roy! Just because she has good hair, it doesn’t make her “Becky” and just because it is a fried Asian appetizer with meat filling, it ain’t a fried momo. Momos hail from the Tibet-Nepal region whereas wontons are Chinese, and the that is not even the biggest difference.
Anyhoo, back to our wontons, the custom-shaped dumplings usually filled with pork meat. Variations often feature a chicken, mixed vegetable or crab filling. This recipe will tell you how to whip up a batch of meat-filled (chicken, beef, turkey, pork or lamb) fried wontons.
