Homemade Wonton Wrapper (with egg)/云吞皮

Pin It Now!

I used to make pasta/noodles. The ingredients are simple egg and all- purpose flour. With the help of pasta machine we can have fresh homemade noodles meal as and when we want.
 
I actually make this wonton wrapper with noodles/pasta recipe. I expect having wonton as sold outside but not. After some net surfing then only realized wonton wrapper is made without egg :P Anyway wonton wrapper with egg turns out great too! My kids like it.


 
In order to prevent the wonton sheets from sticking, I use tapioca flour and lots of it. Therefore I don't suggest cook wrapped wonton directly in broth. But I recommend frying the wonton first (with filling) before cook in broth. So your broth won't turn starchy. I find that it taste great too!

Since these wonton skins is homemade it is better consume it as soon as possible. Wrap it with your favourite filling and fry them all! Keep the fried wonton in fridge (in freezer for longer shelflife) for soup.



 
Ingredient: yield about 270g wonton wrapper
200g all-purpose flour
2 eggs (weight about 55g with shell each)
 


Method:
1. Slightly whisk the eggs. Pour into the all-purpose flour bowl. Mix by running a fork around the flour. Try to combine every bit of egg with the flour.
 
2. Once all combine get in your hand and gather the lumps together become dough. Slightly knead the dough. The dough might seem a bit dry and hard to get smooth. Don't worry as it meant to be. So it won't stick on pasta machine. The texture will smooth once working with the pasta machine. Cover and leave aside to rest for 30 minutes.

 
3. Divide into manageable portions (about 6 portions). Set the roller to the thickest setting (with lowest number). Roll the dough over the pasta machine. Fold and roll over again. Repeat till smooth and even surface has achieved. Keep aside and is ready for next step. Repeat the same for the rest portions.


 
4. Adjust the pasta machine to smaller feed. Roll in the smooth pasta. Keep reducing the thickness of the feeder until get the thinness sheet.
* If you are making noodles/pasta cut the sheets into noodles. Fresh homemade noodles are done!


5. Generously apply tapioca flour on the pasta. Fold and stack in order to get nice square shape. Cut the 4 sides to get squares. Proceed with the rest till finish.



6. Store in airtight container and keep in fridge. They are ready for wrapping!

  8. Thanks for this tutorial. It's got some of the best step by step photos for making wontons w/ a pasta machine:).
    Just a head's up: using cornstarch or arrowroot instead of tapioca flour will allow you to simmer, pan fry, etc.

    HTH and keep the information flowing:).
