Things to know about Yóu Zhá Wonton Recipe

The first wonton recipe in China is boiled, but the Chinese Traditional Fried Dumpling from Guangdong – Yóu zhá Wonton has become very popular in different parts of China. A crisp wrapper and a savory filling will give you a surprising flavor in every bite.

In Chinese, wonton means “to swallow clouds” because of its billowing cloud-like wrapper when it is boiled. Wonton has fewer fillings compared to Jiaozi because you will enjoy its crispy wrapper more than its filling. The filling is usually seafood or savory meat, and a rectangle wrapper is used to cover the filling. Its wrapper is colored yellow from the egg yolk. Chinese fried wonton is the best appetizer that you cannot stop eating once you bite one.
