About this recipe: These fragrant Chinese-style pasta purses are made with wonton wrappers, available from Oriental supermarkets. They are part fried, then simmered in stock and served on a bed of green leaves with a salad of crunchy vegetables, peanuts and coriander. Serve as an unusual first course for a Chinese feast.
Instead of frying and then simmering the pot-stickers, they can be steamed as for dim sum with dipping sauce. If you do not want to steam them on a bed of leaves, line the bottom of the steamer with foil, grease it with a little sunflower oil and then prick it all over to allow the steam to come through. * For an alternative filling, replace the minced pork, hoisin sauce and water chestnuts with minced turkey, yellow bean stir-fry sauce and canned bamboo shoots. * Make a half quantity of dough for these pot-stickers.
Peanuts are a good source of protein, niacin, phosphorus and potassium. Although they contain large amounts of fat, the majority of it is monounsaturated.
