Home: Shepherd's Purse & Pork Wonton

Shanghainese shepherd's purse and pork wonton is one of my favourite dumpling meals.

Simple, hearty and delicious. One of those really satisfying meals that make you feel nice and warm and good inside.

Home made is always the best. No matter where I go and what I try, restaurant wonton or Asian grocery store wonton never beats home made.

You can make them according to how you like it in terms of size and filling:pastry ratio. Personally, I don't like them too big and bulky, and I like a lot of pastry compared to the filling.

It's also nice to know exactly what goes into your dumpling and how clean your cooking utensils and bowls are.

The wonton pastry can be sourced from most asian grocery stores. We usually get it from Chinatown or Ashfield.
