May also be fried or boiled. Shop-bought wonton wrappers may be used instead of making your own dough.

Preparation steps

1.
Mix the flour, salt, egg and water in a mixing bowl until you have a smooth dough. You may need to add a little more water but be careful the dough doesn't become too wet.
2.
Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead for 10 minutes then place in a clean bowl, cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
3.
Meanwhile, make the filling. Put aside some of the chopped coriander for the garnish. Mix all the remaining ingredients together in a bowl.
4.
Turn the dough onto a floured board, divide in half, roll each half into a cylinder and cut each cylinder into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a circle and place a little of the filling in the centre. Moisten the dough with a little water and draw the edges together, twisting gently as you do so to ensure a good seal. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling, covering the dough you are not using with a clean cloth to prevent it drying out.
5.
Steam the wontons in a steamer lined with greaseproof paper for about five minutes then carefully remove from the steamer, brush with a little sesame oil and scatter over the reserved chopped coriander.
6.
Serve the wontons with a few salad leaves and the chilli sauce alongside for dipping.
