Cabbage – 2 cups,
Reserve some shredded cabbage, carrots and bell pepper for plating. Put a wok on high heat. Add oil and quickly stir fry carrot, bell pepper with green chilli, ginger and lemon grass, for about a minute. Season with soy sauce, salt and pepper. Switch off the flame and mix the shredded cabbage. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
Take 6 wonton wrappers at a time and form an assembly line. Brush the edges with water, place a tbsp of filling in the center, and fold as a square or a triangle. Pinch the edges and transfer the finished wontons onto a baking sheet and keep them covered with a kitchen towel. Proceed to finish the rest.
Take a flat pan with lid and put it under medium heat. Spray the pan with a tsp of oil and place 5 or 6 filled wontons without crowding the pan. Don’t disturb the potstickers for a whole minute. After they have crisped on one side, gently pour ¼ cup of water in the pan and close the lid. The steam from the evaporating water will cook the potstickers. When all the water has dried and the wonton wrappers are transparent, they are done. Gently transfer onto a platter prepared with the reserved vegetables and serve immediately with your favourite dipping sauce.
I would like to try another dipping sauce, I somehow did not take to the soy sauce (dipping sauce), so if you all have any other suggestions, please do let me know!
I also made Fried Rice and Sweet and Sour Vegetable.
I used the same vegetables ( carrots, cabbage, spring onion, green bell pepper)
3 cups Mixed Vegetables ( I chopped veges in to cubes and carrots in rounds)1/2 Onion, chopped (cook separately)
1 1/2 cup Vegetable stock*
3 tblspn Tomato sauce
2 tblsp Vinegar
1 1/4 tblsp Cornflour
Salt to taste
1 tblsp Butter
Combine all ingredients from Tomato sauce up to salt. Boil the vegetables in water until just cooked. Reserve the water (vegetable stock). Heat butter in a pan, add the onion and cook till translucent, add the sauce and boil . Add the boiled vegetables, mix well. Boil and let the sauce thicken. Serve with Fried rice!! This meal is light and tasty but at the same time,not at all spicy!
Have a great weekend!!!!
