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

She sent me a pack of this Korean mochi bread premix and ask me to try. Thanks to LK for sending me the pack of Korean mochi bread premix. This premix is not cheap, a pack of 550g cost rm12.50.  本想老早就来玩玩这麻磁面包担是就一直没行动 :p 友LK拿一包韩式QQ面包预拌粉给我,就赶快试一试吧!! Nice looking little buns, my second ask me "mummy, its this some kind of DINO eggs??" Haha..what do you think? Do you feel the same as my second? This is my first attempt for this Korean mochi bread. I am quite happy with the out come of this Korean Mochi Bread. I have 2 recipes with me when i wanted to try out, which i can't decided which to use. In the end i decided to use the smaller portion recipe. I was thinking if it doesn't turn out well, as least i did not waste too much ingredients :p The recipe i am using is from a fb friend, Pheony. She is a great baker. All her cakes,
