Sweet nut wonton

Tasty little bite-sized sweets that are good for a dessert, parties or as snacks when you need an energy boost.


Preparation method

  1. Chop the dates, walnuts and pecan nuts finely. Put into a large bowl.

  2. Combine the dates and nuts with desiccated coconut, sesame seeds and soft brown sugar. Mix well.

  3. Add chestnut purée. Using a fork, work until the purée is thoroughly mixed with the nuts and forms a paste.

  4. Place 1 tsp of mixture in the centre of each wrapper. Dampen the edges with a small amount of water. Gather sides around filling, pinch edges together.

  5. Heat oil in wok, deep fry sweet wontons until golden brown. Drain on absorbent kitchen towel. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
