Wanton but no mee

Found this pic in the camera just now. Forgot to blog about my first attempt to make wanton. Especially got my mum who helped me buy minced pork, prawns, water chestnut. I already have dried mushrooms at home. Wanted to get black fungus but hubby thinks it's iffy whether RaeAnne will like it cos black fungus has a certain taste.

Oops, forgot to take a photo of the cooked wanton cos I was busy cooking and hubby came back late so I had to look after RL while the maid fed RaeAnne.

Anyway, RaeAnne said nice nice but she keeps spitting out the bits of water chestnut. Whereas hubby said nice BUT there is not enough water chestnut though I chopped up 3water chestnuts and the meat paste was very 'lumpy' in texture due to the chopped water chestnuts and 2 big mushrooms. Duh...there is no pleasing the fussy daughter and daddy... So, I'm not going to make it again until I feel more appreciated. hehe. ;P

Thanks. I think you are the most appreciative one so far. haha. Your veg version sounds yummy. Did you use dou fu or dou gan. Need to fry it first? Got recipe? I can help to make for my mum who does not take pork. :)

if you want more fragant, can fry the dou gan, tofu is soft so the paste will be moisture and softer. you can experiment with little ingredient first! i also trial and error a few times hehe. basically i steam the potato, stir fry the mushroom with seasoning, then mash the potato and mix all together. very easy la
