Are you familiar with wontons? This authentic Cantonese dish is incredibly popular and a lot of fun to make. Wontons are made by wrapping various fillings in dough. We prepare them with delicious marinated pork, but you can also make them with other fillings like chicken or shrimp.
Interested in making wontons at home? You can! We'll guide you through the process of creating this delightful dish yourself.



  1. Finely chop the white part of the spring onions and set aside the green part for garnishing later. Also, finely chop 100g of cabbage and, if desired, a small piece of ginger.
  2. Place the ground pork in a bowl and knead it briefly. Marinate it with oyster sauce, sesame oil, Shaoxing wine, light soy sauce, fish sauce, and white pepper. Finally, add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and mix until well combined.
  3. Now add the finely chopped spring onions, cabbage, and ginger. Mix everything together thoroughly.
  4. It's time to fold the wontons. Take a wonton wrapper and place about a teaspoon of marinated ground pork in the center. Make sure the square wrapper is oriented with a corner facing you. Dampen all the corners with a bit of water. Fold the corner closest to you to the opposite side to form a triangle. Then fold the left and right sides toward the center point. Gently press the ends together, ensuring all the air is expelled from the wontons. Repeat this process for all the wrappers and set them aside.
  5. Fill a saucepan with 1 liter of water and add the wonton soup base. Place the folded wontons in the saucepan and let them cook. Boil them for 4 to 5 minutes over medium heat, making sure they don't stick to the bottom. It's best to move them around with chopsticks.
  6. Remove the wontons from the pan and serve them. 


If you have leftover wontons, you can easily freeze them. Arrange them in a container, cover with foil, and freeze for 3 to 4 hours. Then, transfer them to a bag to save space and prevent the wrappers from sticking together. Want to cook the frozen wontons? Thaw them for 2 to 3 hours before cooking.
