Fried Wantan ~炸馄饨

Hi everyone!! Fried wantan, is one of the dim sum i love. It is crispy on the outside with moist and chewy prawn or meat filling inside. It always come with a sauce, like mayonnaise mix or chili sauce. My boys love it with tomato ketchup. How about you??
I will share what is special inside the mayonnaise mix. My friend who own a dim sum restaurant share with me that how they mix this mayonnaise mix for the fried dim sum. She also mention that all the fried ones are using the same mayonnaise mix.
This round i wrapped the fried wantan same as the previous Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow). I am going to share a tutorial on how to wrap this, due to popular demand..LOL
