Ingredients for wanton (Makes about 45 wantons)

  • 250 g minced pork
  • 8-10 tiger prawn minced
  • 2-3 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp shao xing wine
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1.5 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tsp corn flour
  • 1/2 egg
  • 2.5 tbsp chopped spring onions
  • 1 packet of wanton wrapper

Topping for noodles (serves 2)

  • 1 Pack of fresh egg noodle
  • Char Siew thinly sliced (recipe link below)
  • Baby chye sim
  • Chicken stock

Sauce for noodles (each serving)

  • 2 tsp sweet soy sauce/kicap manis
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp of ketchup
  • Your choice of chilli paste/sauce to taste optional I used sambal chilli
  • 1-2 tbsp of chicken stock


  • Put all the ingredients for wanton except for the wrapper into a mixing bowl.
  • Mix well with hand.
  • Set up wrapping station. Plate, wrapper, filling, tray.
  • Dust plate and tray with a little plain flour so that the wanton will not stick.
  • You will need a little bowl of water to seal the wanton.
  • Place about 1 tsp of meat filling on wanton wrapper.
  • Dip finger into water and apply around the bottom edges (U shaped) as shown.
  • Fold and seal the edges.
  • Fold in half again length wise and pinch the ends together.
  • Continue until done.
  • I lay mine out on a tray so it will not stick together when I freeze it.
  • I'm making extra for my lunch.
  • To store it for later use, freeze it on tray for an hour.
  • Then transfer into ziplock bag for storage in freezer.
  • If you are making all on the same day then there is no need to freeze.
  • Cook wanton in a boiling pot of chicken stock.
  • After wanton is cooked, take it out and set aside.
  • Blanch chye sim in chicken stock too.
  • You can see that I have another pot of stock behind for my noodles.
  • Prepare your sauce.
  • You can prepare it on your serving dish itself, and simply place noodle on top.
  • I like to toss my noodles with the sauce in another bowl before transferring to my serving plate.
  • Cook noodle in chicken stock for a min.
  • Then using a strainer to hold the noodles, run it under cold tap water to stop the cooking process, and remove excess starch.
  • Assemble wanton noodles with toppings and a bowl of broth with wanton in it.
  • Serve immediately.
