Ingredients:

For the Wontons:

1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 400g minced pork (Woolworths)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine (optional, available at Asian grocery stores)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped spring onions

  • For the Broth:

    8 cups chicken broth (Woolworths)

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 whole chicken breast (optional, for a richer broth)
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 scallion, white part only, chopped
  • 1 star anise (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon white peppercorns
  • Salt, to taste

  • For Serving:

    Chopped spring onions

  • Chopped fresh coriander
  • Woolworths Soy Sauce
  • Woolworths Chilli Oil (optional)

  • Instructions:

    1. Make the Wonton Wrappers:

    In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Slowly add boiling water, mixing with a fork until a shaggy dough forms.

  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces. Roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface into a thin sheet, about 2-3mm thick.

  • 2. Make the Wonton Filling:

  • In a bowl, combine minced pork, soy sauce, Shaoxing wine (if using), sesame oil, white pepper, and spring onions. Mix well to combine.
  • 3. Assemble the Wontons:

    Cut the dough sheet into 3-inch squares. Place a small spoonful of filling in the center of each square.

  • Brush the edges of the square with water. Fold the square diagonally into a triangle, pinching the edges to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

  • 4. Make the Broth:

    In a large pot, combine chicken broth, water, chicken breast (if using), ginger, garlic, scallion, star anise (if using), and white peppercorns. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • Remove chicken breast (if using) and shred the meat. Discard star anise (if using). Season the broth with salt to taste.

  • 5. Cook the Wontons:

  • Bring the broth back to a boil. Gently drop the wontons into the boiling broth and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until they float to the surface.
  • 6. Serve:

  • Divide the wontons and broth into serving bowls. Top with chopped spring onions, chopped coriander, and a drizzle of Woolworths Soy Sauce and Chilli Oil (optional). Enjoy!
