Background

I personally love this soup version especially after a long haul flight as it somehow gives me a comforting feeling.

In this recipe, I opted for wantan wrap bought from the store. Preparation of this dish is pretty simple. However, wrapping wantans can be pretty tricky as water is used to seal the wrap. Too much water might cause the wrap to tear.

If you do not like wantans in soup, you can opt to have them fried instead. Serve with some sweet chilli sauce. You will love its crispiness. Have fun wrapping these delicious dumplings. This recipe yields around 14 to 16 pieces of wantans. Check out the wantan noodles recipe on the website too.
