How to make wonton soup recipe

  1. First prepare the ravioli dough . Mix the flour, a pinch of salt and water in a bowl and start kneading until you get a homogeneous dough. Wrap it in plastic wrap or let it rest under an upside down bowl for at least half an hour.
  2. Meanwhile prepare the filling . Chop the green part of the spring onion and add it to the minced meat. Season with rice wine, salt and pepper and mix everything well.
  3. Roll out the ravioli dough very thinly and cut it into 8 cm squares . Place a teaspoon of filling in the center then fold in half, forming a triangle. Press the filling lightly and make the two vertices of the triangle coincide: in shape they will resemble large tortellini (but they should not be closed around the finger).
  4. Boil them in plenty of lightly salted water for 5 minutes .
  5. In the meantime, prepare the broth directly in the dishes by putting in each one a pinch of salt and one of white pepper, a spoonful of sesame oil, 2 ladles of boiling water, the pok choi cut into strips.
  6. Add the ravioli and finish with the sliced ​​white part of the spring onion, a teaspoon of soy sauce per plate and finally some sesame seeds. Serve hot.

Chinese ravioli soup is perfect for an ethnic dinner prepared at home. How about preparing sweet and sour chicken as a second course?


Wontons keep in the refrigerator for a few hours before being cooked. Once boiled, however, it is better to keep them separate from the broth and assemble everything before bringing the dish to the table.
