Wontons in Chili Oil

 

Chili can help people who lived in palces with humid cold climate to remove wet cold air in their bodies. I think it is one reason that chili and chili oil are discovered everywhere in Sichuan. As a famous street food of Sichuan, wontons in chili oil can’t  be replaced. Generally only meat stuffing is in this wonton. Of course you may add vegetables or other ingredients you love to the fillings.

Wonton has different names in different places of China. People in Guangdong province called it “Wonton “, crowd belonged to Sihuan named it “Chao Shou”, and  northerners called it “Hun Dun”. For me they are only small dumplings. Also we can find dozens of  cooking ways for wonton soup included clear soup, broth, seafood soup, laver egg shredded soup etc.

It is a happiness thing to have a bowl of wonton soup in cold winter.
