Chinese New Year Dishes – Part 6（年菜之六）
This was my last CNY dish prepared on Thursday 17th February "Chap Goh Meh". After our heavy "Chap Goh" lunch sharing, I was saved to prepare dinner as there was still pretty much left over food especially sweet and sour fish.
However, to add some lucky chime to our dinner I had fried some wontons. The shape of the deep fried golden color of the wontons resembled gold ingots (Yuan Bao元宝) widely circulated during the Ming Dynasty. It was a great auspicious symbol of wealth. Best of all, this snack was so simple and flexible to make. Other than the normal mince fillings you could opt for any ingredients which you could find in your fridge! J If you wish to eat healthier, you can make the wonton soup instead. Check out my previous post on this.
