How to Roll a Wonton

Save

A wonton is an appetizer found in Chinese cuisines. It usually has a dough wrapping with minced meat and vegetables inside. You can boil it and serve it in soups or deep fry it. There are several methods for rolling wonton, with varying levels of difficulty. The shape of the wonton roll does not affect its taste, although it may affect whether it is evenly cooked. You can get creative and create your own wonton shapes if you wish.

Things You'll Need

  • Wonton wrapper
  • Wonton filling (of your choice)
  • Water
  • Brush (optional)

Triangle

  • Place the wonton wrapper on an even surface with one point toward you.

  • Place 2 tsp. of wonton filling on the center of the wonton wrapper.

  • Dip a brush or your finger in water and wet the edges of the side of the wonton facing up.

  • Fold the wonton wrapper in half diagonally so it forms a triangle.

  • Pinch the edges of the wonton to remove air bubbles and seal the wonton.

Flower Bud

  • Place the wonton wrapper on your working surface with a point toward you.

  • Put 2 tsp. of wonton filling just below the center of the wonton wrapper.

  • Fold the bottom point of the wonton wrapper up over the filling and tuck the end under the filling.

  • Roll the wonton wrapper's bottom part up once to fully cover the filling. You should have about 1 inch of unrolled wonton wrapper visible at the top.

  • Dampen the right edge of the side of the wonton wrapper that faces up.

  • Bring the left and right corners of the wonton wrapper toward you until they meet and overlap just below the filling.

  • Pinch the part where the corners meet together to seal the wonton.

Nurse Cap

  • Place the wonton wrapper on your working surface so that one straight edge faces you.

  • Place 2 tsp. of wonton filling on the center of the wonton wrapper.

  • Moisten the edges of the side of the wonton wrapper that faces up.

  • Fold the bottom edge of the wonton wrapper up to meet the top edge so you get a rectangle.

  • Moisten the bottom right edge of the wonton rectangle.

  • Bring the bottom left and right corners of the rectangle toward you until they meet in front of the filling.

  • Press the edges of the wonton to seal it.

Tips & Warnings

  • Freeze your wontons up for up to one month if you make more than you can finish in one meal.
