Cantonese Wonton Noodle Soup

Cantonese style vegetable wonton noodle soup

International Food Challenge is evolved out of similar interests and passion in exploring the cuisines from all over the world. Saras of Sara's Kitchen and Shobana of Kitchen Secrets and Snippets, have teamed up to welcome foodie and food bloggers to join in this mission to learn, explore the world cuisine along with the heritage every country possess and get to know some ideas what every country has to offer with respect to food. Join our facebook group page to get in touch with the event as well as for the latest updates.

The cuisine that we are going to explore this month is the Cantonese cuisine, which is considered to be the finest of China's regional cuisines. Cantonese cuisine, also named Yue Cuisine, comes from Guangdong province and is one of the Eight Culinary Traditions of Chinese cuisine. Steaming and stir-frying are the two primary Cantonese cooking techniques. Other techniques involved are roasting, sautéing, deep-frying, braising and stewing.

Out of the four recipes given to us, I chose to make the Cantonese Wonton Noodle Soup with Chinese Scallion Pancake. Wonton noodle soup is a Cantonese noodle dish which is popular in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. The dish is usually served in a hot broth, garnished with vegetables and wonton dumplings. Fresh noodles or thin egg noodles work best for these Cantonese-style wonton noodle soup. We enjoyed the soup hot with some fresh Chinese Scallion Pancakes.

Preparing the wonton:

1. Spoon about 1 tsp of the filling onto the center of each wonton wrapper. Use finger or a pastry brush to lightly moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with water.

2.  Fold over to form a triangle encasing the filling. Press the edges together to seal. Moisten the two long ends of the triangle, fold them together, and press them firmly to seal.

Preparing the soup:

1. Cook the noodles with salt according to the instructions in the package. Drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside till use.
